Sonic Peach Tea #fail

So, I've been hearing about Sonic's peach tea for some time now. I believe it was my neighbor that mentioned it last summer. I just shrugged it off because.....well, I have never been one to actually drink (and like) flavored teas other than the SUPER SWEET flavor.

Someone else mentioned Peach tea on twitter (my daily hangout) and I got to craving some of this tea. I was craving it so badly that I was actually smelling peaches. *I love peaches!

I mentioned (AHEM hinted) to the Hunky one that I would like to try this tea but of course it was too late that night for tea but it wasn't too late for Krystal cheeseburgers....mmmm!

Oh wait, back to the tea....
I did finally get that famous PEACH TEA (the next day). 
I will admit--The first two sips were kind of ehhh? I wasn't so sure about it but by the time I got to the middle....It was ALL GOOD!

The wheels started spinning. I was thinking to myself "I could make this stuff and have it anytime I wanted it."
Afterall, it is hard for me to get to Sonic everyday with 3 kids in tow.

I started searching for Peach Tea recipes.
Searching...
Searching...
Weeding out the ones with too many ingredients...

I finally stumbled on two that sounded pretty easy and worth the effort (which was little to none).

 Simple enough, right? WRONG I couldn't find peach nectar in my little PODUNK town's Wal-Mart. The closest I could find was Guava. Let me just say Guava and Peach are two different flavors. 
Me no likey.

Ok, this one calls for Peach jello. 
hmm...
Great idea OR SO I THOUGHT

When I told Hunky Hubby about this one he said "Yeah, but won't it turn into jello?"
I was all "Uhh NO!" 
"You have to like boil that stuff before it becomes jello."
"Geesh!"

I tried this one today. It smelled and tasted just like the Sonic tea.
BUT
Unless you want to gulp down that tea in a minute flat....
Forget about it.
&
Let's just say that the Hunky One was right.
lil sidenote: If I would have actually paid attention to uhh you know...the second step in the recipe, I would have known that this was for HOT peach tea. 
:sigh:

All I wanted was some peach tea that tastes just like Sonic's Peach Tea.


Can someone help me?

You are probably screaming "Just get the Lipton Peach tea."
That would be too easy, right?
Well, I heard that it wasn't that good but I swear if some Sonic carhop comes and tells me that is what they use....
Well...
I'll go out and buy it : )

Use the "syrup/juice" from canned peaches! ...sometimes, I freeze the syrup from canned peaches in ice cube trays - and pop 'em in my sweet tea :)

...or, you could just pour some straight into your tea (:

Now I have to go to Sonic and try it :)

I'd laugh if they told you they use Lipton mix. Our nearest Sonic is over an hour away, so we've been there once, and it was - eh.

That sounds SO good right now! I'll have to try it!

I've tried the syrup...it still don't taste the same. I tried every thing you have tried but for the jello. Short of kidnapping a Carhop...I'll figure it out someday! I'm thinking snowcone syrup next?????
