A quick note before we get to the recipe though:
If you like stronger tea and want to leave the tea bags in a little longer, add a pinch of baking soda prior to brewing. Otherwise remove the tea bags as soon as the pressure has been fully released to prevent any bitterness.

- 8 Cups Water
- 6 Black Tea Bags Tags Removed
- 4 Fresh Peaches Pitted and cut into chunks

Add the lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting on normal for 5 minutes.
When finished, allow the pressure to release naturally (NR) for 10-15 minutes. then do a quick release (QR) to allow the remaining pressure to escape.
Carefully strain the hot tea mixture with a fine mesh strainer to remove the solids. Pour the remaining liquid into a large, heat-resistant pitcher.
Sweeten with honey (optional) and stir to combine. Serve over ice with peach slices and springs of fresh mint for garnishes if desired.
