    This ended up being much better than I'd expected! I used 8 bags of black tea, and doubled the amount of peach slices (about 10 slices) from a can with heavy syrup. It ended up being rather sweet, which I personally like. If you're not so crazy about sweetness, consider reducing the amount of sugar and using peaches in their juice rather than syrup. I believe adding the amount of slices I did really helps bring out the peach flavor, which I wanted to be rather strong. Overall, I loved this!

    I made this tonight to go with a pork chop dinner that I served my DD, DSIL and DW. I thought it was pretty good but the others weren't so crazy about it. My DW is a plain sweet tea drinker and adding fruit just isn't her cup of tea! But I liked it. Made for PAC 2011.

    Mmmmmm, summer and sweet tea. This has a perfect amount of sweetening and the peachiness (is that a word?) is great. It just makes you want to take that iced pitcher and move out to the porch and put your feet up with a good book. Simple to make and made with things I always have on hand. Pure pleasure.
