Hey teammatey! I made this & it's delish! I cut it down a bit & threw it all in the blender to puree the peaches vs. peeling, mashing & straining them. The end result looked more like a smoothie than iced tea but it was just for me. :) Made for US Southern round of Culinary Quest by a fellow Cruisin' Culinary Queen. :) xo Bethie/elmotoo
