Peach Strawberry Basil Ice Tea
water*4 black tea bags3 peaches1 cup strawberries1/2 lemon5-6 basil leavessweetener of choice//I used vanilla stevia
*The amount of water will depend on how big a container you are filling. You will want the end result to be mostly tea, since the strawberry peach mixture is being added for a subtle flavor.
Start by boiling some water with the tea bags. Take tea bags out when it is strong enough for your preference. Add the tea to a pitcher to cool some. In meantime cut your fruit and add to blender along with lemon juice and a 1/4 cup water. Blend until smooth. It's up to you if you want to strain the liquid mixture to remove all seeds or if you want to add right to the tea. (I strained mine through a nutmilk bag because I don't like seeds in my drink.)
