Miss Julia's Peach Tea

In honor of the release of THE MEMORY HOUSE, I'm sharing the recipe for the delicious peach tea my heroine, Julia, makes for guests in her bed and breakfast inn, The Peach Orchard Inn. 

My  daughter and I can't get enough of it. It's refreshing, fruity, and sweet.

Miss Julia's Peach Tea

Makes about 1 quart

2  one qt. size teabags
2 cups water
Boil bags in water.

Pour boiled tea into a quart jar or pitcher and add 1/2 cup sugar. Stir.
Puree 2  fresh peaches for about a half cup of puree. Strain.
Juice of one lemon
Ice for glasses

Mix all together. Fill quart container the rest of the way with water.  . 

Garnish if desired with mint, toothpick of berries, a strawberry slice, peach slice floating around it in. (That's what I have in mine but the peaches this time of year were white!)

The Memory House goes on sale March 31! Read an excerpt.
