Peach, Orange & Lemongrass Iced Tea
Refreshing peach and orange iced tea infused with lemongrass for a citrusy flavor! Healthy, perfectly sweet, and so good!
- 3 cups water
- 3 lemongrass stalks
- 2 bags peach tea or 2 tbsp peach-flavored loose tea
- 2 medium oranges
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (or more to taste)
Fill a medium-size saucepan with 3 cups of water. Cut the lemongrass stalks in half and slightly crush them using the side of a large knife. Place the lemongrass stalks in the saucepan.
Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and discard the lemongrass stalks.
Add the peach tea bags to the saucepan and let it infuse for about 5 minutes. Once this is done, discard the peach tea bags and let the tea cool for about 30 minutes.
In the meantime, cut the oranges in half. Squeeze out the juice by hand, or by using a citrus reamer. You should get about 1/2 cup of orange juice.
Combine the orange juice with the peach lemongrass tea and add maple syrup to taste.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and serve chilled with ice cubes, and fresh peach and orange slices.
