Peach Nectar & Lavender Iced Tea

Print Friendly
The combination of peach nectar and lavender tea make a lovely cold beverage. This iced tea is perfect for a special occasion, and tastes heavenly on a hot summer day.
2 (11.5 ounce) cans peach nectar
2 Tbsp organic culinary lavender buds
6 cups cold water, divided
½ cup sugar
¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
In a small saucepan, boil 3 cups of the water with the lavender buds and tea bags. Once the water begins to boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer the lavender for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, remove the tea bags and strain the lavender buds away from the water, reserving the herbal infusion. Discard the tea bags and lavender buds. Stir the sugar in the lavender infusion until the sugar is completely dissolved.
In a large pitcher, combine the peach nectar, cold water, lavender infusion, lemon juice and stir well. Serve over ice and garnish with a fresh sprig of lavender (optional).
