Mmmm, fresh blackberries and basil flavor the tea and taste so yummy! Feel free to mix this up and try strawberries, or even raspberries or blueberries!

Boy, my pitcher is a lot bigger than any tea pot in my house so I just made it all in a big cooking pot, let it cool and put it into the pitcher. The blackberries were a lot more expensive that I had expected so I plan on enjoying every drop of this lovely tea. As a base I used Tetley's Ceylon tea. It tastes wonderful and is also pretty in the glass. :D
- 2 -3 black tea bags (or green tea-I use decaf)
- 1⁄4 cup fresh blackberries (or frozen)
- 6 -8 fresh basil leaves, cut in thin strips
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1⁄2 cup lemonade
- 2 cups ice, in pitcher
- honey, as desired
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine tea bags, blackberries, and basil in a tea pot. Mash the blackberries a little. Fill with boiling hot water and steep for 5 minutes. Pour and strain into ice-filled pitcher. Add lemonade and honey as desired. Fill individual glasses with ice and serve.
