Can I Make Peach Tea Using Canned Peaches?

Yes, you can use canned peaches for this recipe. You will need to drain the juice from the canned peaches. Then, puree the peaches and add to the tea. If you want to use frozen peaches, you will need to cook them first to make them soft enough to puree for the recipe.

What Type of Tea Is Best For This Recipe?

Any black tea bags made for brewed iced tea will work. Lipton and Luzianne each have their own special blends for iced tea and are probably the most well known, but any iced tea blend will work fine.
