Basil Peach Infused Sweet Tea
Y'all, this is the best sweet tea I think I might have ever tasted and I have had a lot of sweet tea in my day! I started with my usual base sweet tea recipe which is:
2 quarts of purified water brought to a boil, 1/2 cup pure cane sugar and 1/4 cup honey or agave stirred in until dissolved and then 5 decaf iced tea bags and 3 decaf green tea bags steeped in it for 5-8 minutes.
Once it cooled I added a bunch of frozen peaches and fresh basil leaves and let them infuse for a few minutes. When it was ready I poured it into a glass of ice and garnished with a basil leaf and lemon slice... YUM.
If you like infused water and/or iced tea, you must try this!
