For the honey syrup:

  • 1 cup Greek honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 medium ripe peaches or nectarines
  • Half a small cinnamon stick
  • 1 – 2 rose geranium leaves if available (unsprayed)

For the tea

  • 2-3 Tbsp loose green or black tea or 3 to 4 tea bags, as desired
  • 2 liters or 1/2 gallon of water

For serving

  • 2 – 3 peaches each cut into 8 wedges or slices
  • Mint leaves for garnish
  • Ice


For the syrup:

  1. Wash, thinly slice and remove the seeds of the 2 peaches. Place them in a pot with the water, honey, cinnamon and rose geranium leaves. Bring to a quick boil over medium heat and then turn heat to low and simmer for a few minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Using a slotted spoon break up the peaches insideto infuse better. Do not mash them completely and do not use the blender as that would make your syrup cloudy.
  3. Let it steep for 30 minutes. Strain, discard the peaches (you can use them in your morning cereal bowl, or have them with some yogurt) and let the syrup cool down.
  4. Transfer to a bottle and store in the fridge for up to a week.

For the tea:

  1. Follow the instructions for the tea making sure you do not let the tea steep longer as it may turn bitter. Mix the tea with the syrup and lots of ice. Transfer to a pitcher and serve immediately.
