Recipe by 2Bleu
A spectacular garden summer treat that is very healthy and delicious. Blackberries are preferred, but you can use any typ berries. Using honey keeps it clean eating, but you can opt for sugar or Splenda if you prefer.

I enjoyed this recipe as I'm an avid iced tea drinker of various flavors. I love blackberries so I knew I would love this. I would just cut down on the mint next time as it was a little too strong for my taste. Thank you for sharing!
- 4 tea bags (Lipton preferred)
- 6 lemon balm leaves, whole (plus more for garnish, or mint)
- 1⁄2 cup honey, to taste
- 6 ounces fresh blackberries (plus more for garnish)
Directions See How It's Made
- In a large pot, boil 4 cups of water. Remove from heat, tear the mint leaves in half and add to the pitcher along with the tea bags. Stir gently, cover and let steep about 10-15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, Puree blackberries in a blender or food processor, strain into a 2 quart pitcher (discarding pulp and seeds). Strain the water into the pitcher, discarding tea bags and mint. Add in honey, tasting and adjusting to your desired sweetness. Top with cold water to fill, stirring to incorporate.
- Chill for at least 4-6 hours in the refrigerator. Serve over ice and garnish with a mint leaf and some blackberries.
