Peach and Mint Iced Tea
This tea can be made year round, but it will make for a perfect summertime drink since peach season is at its peak in July and August.
For your heart health, it pays to go green. When green tea is harvested it’s allowed to wither, which means there is no oxidation. when drinking tea, it’s advised to choose green tea as often as possible, but be sure not to ruin it by adding in sugar. That’s one reason why this tea recipe is an excellent choice. You won’t have to add any sugar to this iced tea because the fresh peaches give this refreshing drink its sweet flavor. Make it ahead of time and enjoy a little boost of vitamin C with each glass.
