Is there any other fruit as bright and summer-y as the peach? The juicy fruit has been celebrated the world over for its fresh, sweet flavor. Vincent VanGogh, the famous painter of old, liked them so much he featured them in some of his paintings - most notably his work Pink Peach Trees painted in 1888. The people of Georgia like them so much that they made it their state fruit and celebrate them every year at the Georgia Peach festival. This festival sees among its many attractions, the baking of the world's largest Peach Cobbler and the annual crowning of Miss Georgia Peach. (No doubt VanGogh, were he still alive, would have had her sit for a portrait!) But why the name Peach Lift? Well brew yourself a pot, pour a cup hot or over ice and we're sure you'll see what we mean!
IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100ºC/212ºF
HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of loose tea or 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the tea or removing the tea bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about.)
