How to Make Ginger-Peach Iced Tea in the Instant Pot
Yields: 6-8 Servings | Prep time: 5 mins | Cook time: 15-20 mins
8 c. water
6 black tea bags, paper tags removed
4 fresh peaches, pitted and cut into chunks
1 T. fresh ginger, finely minced
Honey, to taste
1 fresh peach, cut into thin slices
6-8 fresh mint sprigs
Add water, tea bags, peaches, and fresh ginger to Instant Pot and stir to combine.
Add lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting on normal for 5 minutes.
When finished, allow pressure to release naturally (NR) for 10-15 minutes, then do a quick release (QR) to allow the remaining pressure to escape.
Carefully strain hot tea mixture with a fine mesh strainer to remove the solids. Pour the remaining liquid into a large, heat-resistant pitcher.
Sweeten with honey, to taste, and stir to combine. Cool slightly before serving over ice with peach slices and sprigs of fresh mint, if desired. Enjoy!
