    Elmotoo's Note:

    I heard a lot about Raspberry Iced Tea during ZWT6. When the dust settled, I went in search. While they all look great, I only have loose tea and Earl Grey bagged to take to work. So I started experimenting (uh oh). I used green tea because I thought that black tea would overpower the delicate raspberries. If anyone makes this with black tea, please leave a comment as to which one & how it turned out! Despite the addition of sugar, this is not a sweet tea. I listed OTHER ADDITIONS because I thought of many other flavors I could add - not necessarily all at once - but haven't gotten around to actually doing it. 'Cooking time' is cooling/steeping time. I hope you enjoy!

    1. 1
      In a 4qt pot, combine water & sugar. This is the time to add a vanilla bean or your whole spice of choice. Bring to a boil.
    2. 2
      Turn off heat & add tea leaves. Cover & let stand to steep & cool an hour or so.
    3. 3
      When somewhat cooled, add fresh raspberries. Continue to let steep/cool a couple more hours.
    4. 4
      Mash raspberries to be sure all juice is extracted. Pour through a fine mesh strainer, pushing on solids to get all the liquid, into a 2qt. pitcher. Add lemon or lime slices, if desired.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

      Refreshing, pretty and easy. I used about half the amount of sugar. Liked the added zing of the lemon.

      Excellent. I added a star anise and about a 1/2 a cinnamon stick to my tea mixture. Also lots of lemon. The sugar is spot on for our tastes and we loved the raspberry tang and colour! There's a little left, so I'm thinking it might not be bad at all with a bit of vodka splashed in???

      We do love raspberry tea, so this recipe really drew me in! And, although I did use frozen raspberries, we thoroughly enjoyed the tea! Thanks for sharing the recipe, which I'll keep on hand to do again when fresh raspberries are at their peak! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup recipe tag]
