Step 1: Add water, tea bags to Instant Pot and stir to combine. If are making the Ginger Peach tea add peaches and fresh ginger now. 

Step 2: Add lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting on normal for 5 minutes. 

Step 3: When finished, allow pressure to release naturally (NR) for 10-15 minutes, then do a quick release (QR) to allow the remaining pressure to escape. 

Step 4: Carefully strain hot tea mixture with a fine mesh strainer to remove the solids. Pour the remaining liquid into a large, heat-resistant pitcher. 

Step 5: Sweeten with honey, to taste, and stir to combine. Cool slightly before serving over ice with peach slices and sprigs of fresh mint, if desired. 

Optional garnish:
1 fresh peach, cut into thin slices
6-8 fresh mint sprigs

Tip: Remove tea bags as soon as the pressure has been fully released to prevent bitterness. If you prefer stronger tea and want to leave the bags in longer, add a pinch of baking soda prior to brewing.

    I have an Instant Pot, but never knew you could make iced tea in it! The instant pot has so many uses. I will have to try making it in there sometime!
