  1. Combine water and tea bags in a medium saucepan and steep for 2 minutes. Remove tea bags, squeeze excess liquid and discard.
  2. Add orange juice, zest, cinnamon, star anise and raspberries. Reduce saucepan to a medium heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add peach juice and caster sugar and stir through.
  3. Strain tea through a large sieve and transfer into serving tea pot or tea cups. Add extra peach or berries to tea pot or tea cups if liked.

TIP – Puree peach in a small food processor. Puree extra peach if liked and freeze in ice cube trays for next time. Then you can make this tea even after peach season ends!

TIP – Make mulled tea up to one week in advance and keep in the refrigerator. Transfer tea to a medium saucepan and warm over medium heat.
