INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s National Iced Tea Month, and fresh ripe peaches are in season, which means homemade peach tea is the way to go.
This recipe gets all of it’s flavor from those fresh, delicious, sweet ripe peaches.

6 Lipton Black Tea
2-4 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup, raw honey or raw sugar
