Fresh Peaches. Using real peaches to give your peach green tea that peach flavor is your best option. The real fruit, is juicy and sweet, giving you the best overall flavor. However, if you do not have access to fresh peaches, another good alternative is to use a can of peach nectar.

How to Make Peach Green Tea
To make peach green tea, you’re going to start off with making the green tea concentrate. That way your green tea will have a chance to cool, well you are preparing the other portions of the tea recipe.
Green Tea Concentrate
Add the cold water into a medium-sized saucepan. Allow the water to heat so that it turns into hot water, then add your teabags. Boil the water for 2-3 minutes with the teabags, to allow the green tea to brew.
After your green tea has brewed, remove the hot tea from the burner and allow it to cool for a few minutes. Once cooled, remove the tea bags and discard them.
Then pour the green tea concentrate into an airtight container, or you can see it in a mason jar with a lid. Let cool for a few minutes at room temperature, then place into the fridge to chill the green tea mixture.
Making the Peach Syrup
To make the homemade peach flavoring, you will want to take your ripe peaches and cut them into pieces. Discard the peach pit, then add the peach slices into a blender or food processor.
Blend the peaches on a high speed until the peach puree is completely liquid. If there are any chunks remaining, you might consider straining the peach purée through a mesh strainer to remove any chunks. Then pour the peach juice into your green tea concentrate.
Sweeten with the Simple Syrup
Prepare your simple syrup by boiling together water and sugar. Let the mixture cool, then add your desired touch of simple syrup to the peach green tea to sweeten it.
To serve your peach green tea, pour the cooled prepared peach green tea into your serving glasses. Add ice cubes, then stir the mixture together before serving. Serve and enjoy your delicious homemade peach green tea!
