  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil.
  • Remove from heat, and add the 13 peach tea bags.
  • Steep for 10 minutes.

  • Simmer over medium heat for 2 minutes, until well combined. Stir often.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes. Set to low if the sauce is bubbling too much.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in 1 tablespoon of butter until it has completely melted.
