Iced tea is the ultimate summer drink. It’s cold, refreshing, and can be just about any flavor under the sun.
With so many possibilities that look complicated it’s easy to get stuck going back to a plain iced tea recipe. These iced tea recipes are simple, easy, and quick. They’re a great drink to have in hand while relaxing in the sun!
You can make a batch of Peach Iced Tea in just 15 minutes with the Instant Pot and it won’t heat up your kitchen like it does on the stovetop.
Equipment for Making Iced Tea
You’ll need a 2-liter pitcher that is heat resistant (so it holds up to adding hot water directly to it), and a fine mesh strainer – like the ones pictured below (click the image to see it on Amazon) – to make this recipe.
If you’re not sure if your pitcher is heat-resistant, don’t pour the hot water or hot simple syrup directly into the pitcher. Allow it to cool first before putting it in the pitcher. Usually, the only time a glass pitcher will shatter is if it’s cold when you pour in hot liquid, but it’s best to be on the safe side.
