Even though summer is fading into fall, we’re still going to be having some warm days for a while and this Fruit Sweet Tea is perfect when you want something refreshing to drink! It’s lightly sweet, and if you like your tea even sweeter, you can always add in some sugar or honey to taste. I prefer mine lightly sweet—this has just the right amount of sweetness for me!
Make this Fruit Sweet Tea with your favorite tea (I used a combination of green and black tea) and add some white grape juice, then slices of orange, lemon, and lime, plus peach slices or thin wedges. It’s best to use organic fruit if you can; otherwise make sure you wash your fruit well!
In addition to serving this tea at brunch, lunch or dinner, it would also make a great beverage for a casual party—or bridal or baby shower. It’s a nice option for guests who prefer something a little less sweet than punch. And the fruit makes it so pretty!
