Make this up in advance for sourdough pancakes. I used Celestial Seasonings® tea. Substitute water for tea if you don't have it on hand. Chopped pecans might taste good in this, as well as brandy instead of vanilla.

For this recipe I used Snapple Peach Tea and no-sugar-added frozen peaches. I did take a little under half of the peaches and a bit of the liquid and puree it then added it back to the pan to make more syrup. I served this sauce over Rich Yogurt Waffles for a special Saturday breakfast--the kids flipped for it and I thought it was excellent. The flavor reminds me of peach pie filling my Grandma used to make. Read More

As with all recipes I review, I followed this recipe faithfully. If I make the recipe a 2nd time I might make a few adjustments that suite my preferences. Excellent! Four stars since it was a bit too sweet. I enjoyed it with ice cream. It was great served warm. If you're a peach lover, this should be in your recipe box. Read More

Amazing and I love the zip that the tea gave it. I used an herbal peach tea and according to the box the first ingredient was orange peel - which I think gave it a wonderful tanginess. This recipe is a keeper exactly as it is although I'm sure it could be tweaked lots of different ways and still turn out wonderful. Read More

Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I made it according to the instructions and it came out fantastic!! The use of peach flavored tea was a brilliant idea in my book. I used this as a sauce over homemade pancakes and got rave reviews from family and friends!! This would be a wonderful topping over ice cream as well as a myriad of other foods!! I will be making this again...and again..and again!! Read More

I was using ripe Colorado peaches so I cut the sugar to 1/3 cup each. Also added just a dash of salt to deepen the flavor palate. Excellent served over cheesecake made with ginger snap crust! Read More

So good and so easy. Made it to go with French toast (the Fluffy French Toast recipe on this site) and it was well-received by all. If you have any left over it makes a great topping for vanilla ice cream and also a great peach milkshake. Read More

I didn't have peach tea so I used Bigelow orange spice tea. I also used canned peaches with light syrup. I did not drain the syrup. I only had one can of peaches so I decreased the other ingredients accordingly. Even with less fruit it was enough for four people. This was so good on top of a Dutch baby that I made for breakfast. The tea really gave it an awesome depth of flavor. It would be fun to experiment with other tea flavors like raspberry or lemon. Read More
