How to make Oolong Peach Iced Tea

After about 5-10 minutes, remove from the heat, cover and let it sit for about 20 minutes.

Brew oolong tea. Put 3 oolong tea bags or 2 rounded tsp loose leaf tea into a clean glass teapot, pour 1.5 liters of boiling water ( perfect temperature to steep oolong tea is around 190º), brew for 5-6 minutes and remove the tea bags.

 

STEP3

Add the peach syrup to the tea. Give it a good stir and transfer to the fridge or just add ice so it can cool down.
