I am so ready for spring and summer and all the refreshing drinks that come with them. Like this EASY recipe for Peach Berry Fruit Tea. We are combining our new favorite sweet tea with fresh fruit and juices for a fun twist on a classic southern beverage. This drink is best served over ice while sitting on the front porch on a hot day, or at the park on a picnic. A tall glass after an afternoon of yard work? Yep, that too. You get the point. It is just that dang good.
Peach Berry Fruit Tea Featuring Sweet Leaf Tea
Everyone in my family is crazy about sweet tea. Refreshing and tasty, it is one of our go-to drinks to have around. While dad may prefer his tea “straight up”, my youngest daughter and I like to make yummy fruit tea combinations. Is there anything more refreshingly satisfying than a tall, ice cold glass of tea with fresh fruit?
For this Peach Berry Fruit Tea, we wanted the recipe to be easy but still capture great, fresh fruit flavor. We used a combination of peaches, raspberries, blackberries and a twist of lemon with our new favorite tea: Organic Sweat Leaf Tea.
Available in so many varieties, Sweet Leaf is a Texas-based company that has been making organic sweet tea for over 20 years. They have perfected the delicious flavor of real tea and it is now available nationwide at Publix. Look for it in the specialty tea aisle in both 64-ounce bottles and portable 16-ounce bottles.

TIP: Pick the freshest fruit you can find for the best-tasting results.
How to Make Peach Berry Fruit Tea:
- Peel two peaches and chop them into small pieces. Stir the peaches with one cup of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a low boil and cook for 5 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly.
- In a blender, pulse the undrained peaches with sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Blend until smooth.
- Next, stir together the prepared peach nectar with 48 ounces of Sweet Leaf Tea (3 bottles). Place in the refrigerator until well chilled.
- To serve, layer the berries and ice in tall glasses. Pour the chilled fruit tea over the ice.
- Garnish with lemon and serve cold.
That’s it! Told you it was easy. Sometimes you don’t have time for all the fuss, but you want all the flavor.
Our recipe makes eight, 8-ounce servings and is “pitcher” perfect for serving friends. Just keep chilled until time to enjoy.
TIP: Freeze the berries in ice cube trays with water for a fun serving twist.
Tips + Ideas for Fruit Tea:
- The combinations are virtually endless using the different types of Sweet Leaf Tea and your favorite fresh fruit.
- Try this recipe using the Citrus Green Tea flavor. Yummy!
- Make a double batch for parties.
- If you have really sweet peaches, leave the sugar out. For that matter, you can leave it out anyway based on your preferred sweetness. I like mine without it.
- Pour the prepared fruit tea into ice cube trays. After freezing, let them soften slightly. Pulse with a blender to make Peach Berry Fruit Tea Slushies! Yas, girl.
My family loves the 16 ounce size bottles because it allows us to try all of the Sweet Leaf flavors. My personal fave? The Mint & Honey Flavor. So good! My daughter loves the Sweet Raspberry. My husband enjoys the Original Sweet Leaf.
With so many flavors, everyone gets what they want.
Sweet Leaf Tea is made with Organic Cane Sugar Sweetener and is a better for you option.
