      Very good! I have made this 3 times with just a few tweeks each time. I like to steep my tea longer (I like strong tea) & add 1/8 tsp. of baking soda while the tea is steeping. Due to the amount of pulp sinking to the bottom of the pitcher mixing the berries and mint in the blender is best. You can strain the tea to remove the seeds as well. Two cups of berries gives the best blend of fruit and tea. We have already reached 100 degrees this summer so this tea will be made often.

      We do love fruity, sweet tea, so your recipe was definitely welcomed here! Most often it's peach or raspberry for us, so making this was a very nice change of pace! Loved everything about it & followed your recipe exactly but without the final garnish! It's certainly a keeper, especially with our warm weather! Many thanks for sharing it!
