I’ve been on the search for some summertime Instant Pot recipes, and I was over-the-moon excited with this Ginger Peach Iced Tea.

Southern Girl Confession: I don’t like sweet tea. I know, I know. You can take away my country girl card now.

But I do like flavored iced teas, and peach is my absolute favorite. I used to drink it at my Grandma’s house as a kid, though I don’t think hers was homemade. Is there a Lipton Peach Iced Tea? If so, I’m sure that’s what I had.

This Instant Pot Iced Tea with peach and ginger is a more grown up, sophisticated tea with a lot more flavors and notes than commercial iced tea.

Don’t have an Instant Pot? Get the one we have HERE. It’s the perfect size for our family of three.

How to Make Instant Pot Iced Tea

Step 1 – Add water, tea bags, peaches, and fresh ginger to Instant Pot and stir to combine.

Step 2 – Place lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to the sealing position and set to manual for 5 minutes. Yep, just five minutes!

Step 3 – When finished, allow pressure to release naturally (NR) for 10-15 minutes, then do a quick release (QR) to allow the remaining pressure to escape. Remember to remove the tea bags promptly once the pressure is released. Leaving them too long may make the tea bitter. If you prefer a stronger tea flavor, add a pinch of baking soda to counteract the bitterness.

Step 4 – Carefully strain hot tea mixture with a fine mesh strainer to remove the solids. Pour the remaining liquid into a large, heat-resistant pitcher.

Step 5 – Sweeten with honey, to taste, and stir to combine. Cool slightly before serving over ice with peach slices and sprigs of fresh mint, if desired. Enjoy!
