Hi Snap,
The peach iced tea looks wonderful; not warm enough here yet to enjoy a glass but it sure does look refreshing! Thanks for sharing and joining me for Tea Time. Have a wonderful day.

We drink a lot of iced tea here when it is warm. I liked your post today showing so many different ways to enjoy this beverage.
Floating fresh fruit in the pitcher sure adds appeal to a refreshing drink.
