 Hi, my name is Amy and I am an addict. I am addicted to tea.

Hot or iced.
Black, white, or green.

It doesn’t really make a difference, I love it all.

Not that long ago I got a can of Lipton sparkling peach green tea in a swag bag and it blew my mind.

sparkpeachtea5It was like combining two of my all time favorite drinks: green tea and peach pop (soda, soft-drink, whatever you call in in your part of the country)…but better.  I’m tempted to tell you now about the time at church camp when I tried to drink my peach pop in the shower because that seemed like a swanky thing to do. Except, I slipped and fell out of the shower in front of everyone while clinging to my precious peach pop and it was really embarrassing. So I won’t go into details.

Let’s just say I’m serious about my peach flavored beverages.

I immediately started searching for a place to buy this awesomeness.

When I found it, I discovered that it was too expensive for me to drink by the gallon. Which was  really what I wanted to do.  I did buy a couple cans and my kids got into it. They loved it too! I knew then that I was going to have to figure out a way to make sparkling tea.

sparkpeachtea4This tea is so simple to make. You start with a couple of peaches, a little bit of sugar, and water boiled together to make a simple peachy keen syrup. The other components are easy-peasy. Cold brew green iced tea and club soda. I tried to keep the sugar minimal because:

  1.  I don’t like sugar to overpower my drinks, especially not my tea.
  2.  I hate drinking all my calories for the day.

The peachiness of this is subtle and fresh with absolutely no artificialness to it at all. To keep the sparkle in your drink, I recommend waiting to mix the tea and club soda until you are ready to drink it. If you can’t get fresh, sweet juicy peaches for whatever reason, you can substitute frozen peaches.

 So come on, break out the lounge chair, grab a novel, and an ice cold glass of this sparkling tea and enjoy that delicious spring sun.

Thanks Jemma, I think that I might “fingers crossed” be starting to get the hang of the new camera.

I am not a huge tea fan, but my kids really like it. Funny thing about living up north is that the first time my kids ordered iced tea up here they took one drink and thought that maybe it was expired or something. I laughed and said “No, it just isn’t sweet…welcome to the North!”

Yes, the difference between northern tea and southern sweet tea is huge! I bet they were shocked. I am not a big sweet tea fan. One time they accidentally gave me a sweet tea at McDonalds in the drive thru…I was so shocked that I spit it out all over my steering wheel. That was one big sticky mess later.

You crack me up! I am really becoming tea-obsessed, which is hard to admit since I’ve never cheated on coffee before, but I’ll have to try this! Brilliant! Thank you!

Bonnie, I used to have a thing with coffee. An all morning, full pot a day, love affair. But then, I got older and coffee didn’t find me so attractive, in fact in kind of started to hate me. Especially my stomach lining. So we kind of broke up and I fell in love with his older brother tea. That may be a lie. I don’t know who’s older. 😉

I love hot tea – all flavors but quit drinking iced tea about 10 years ago this does sound refreshing.

Your pictures look great!

I would be lost without my iced tea. I started having stomach issues a couple years ago which meant I had to cut out almost all the pop and coffee (I still have one of each a week). But this is the best of both worlds, because it’s iced tea, but it has that zing of pop! Thank you so much for the compliment on the pictures. I think that they are slowly improving.
