I just got back from Kuwait for Operation Iraqi Freedom. And there was this bottled peach flavored iced tea that they had at the PX. I can't exactly remember the name but i think its "San Berniditto" its something like that. It comes in a one liter bottle and the only flavors i've seen is lemon and Peach. On the label i think it has an Italian flag on it and a picture of the sun over a grass field i think. I've been trying to find this tea forever since i've gotten back. If anyone knows what its call or where i can find it. I'd greatly appreciate it.
The tea you are looking for is not available in US. And it's likely to be too costly to import it from Italy. As a consolation, we would recommend considering making iced tea from Lemon or Peach teas. These are guaranteed to taste at lease as good, are easy to find, and easy to prepare.

I heard that Peach Tree Tea is good for Diabetics. It supposedly reduces blood sugar levels. I have not been able to find any info that verifies this statement. Is there a Peach Tree Leaf or Tea that is good for the reduction of blood sugars and where can I get such?

Also this is where I buy it at a small Italian
restaurant in Groton Mass. Filho's Cucina

I was on a trip last summer and had a lot of San Benedetto tea (it was a trip to Italy). The places others have mentioned are great to look for it, but if you can't find it or it's too hard to get, try Twinings. Also had some of that in Italy and it was great. It can be found in boxes of 20 at World Market (it takes only 7 to make 2 quarts of iced tea).
