  • This recipe is low in added, free, sugar. Any fruit sugar present is contained within the sliced fruit.
  • If you wanted a sweeter peach and mint tea, you can add peach cordial (no sugar added) or you could caramelise the peach slices with a little honey, pulp the mixture after cooking and add it to the tea.



  • Use different flavoured peach tea eg peach & cherry blossom, peach & orange, peach & green tea
  • Use peaches tinned in water instead of fresh peaches.
  • Use dried mint, mint tea or apple mint instead of fresh mint.
  • Use peach cordial instead of peach flavoured tea bags.
