How to Make Peach Iced Tea
In Georgia, peaches are in season from May to August. A whole summer of these sweet fruits growing everywhere is why Georgia Peach Iced Tea is synonymous with the hot summer months and BBQs.
Is there anything better than sitting in the shade of a tree on a hot, dusty, summer day with a fruity cold drink? Bliss.
