A few common ingredients are all you need to serve this refreshing beverage.
- 4 quarts water
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1 (12 ounce) package frozen unsweetened raspberries
- 10 individual tea bags
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- In a large kettle or Dutch oven, bring water and sugar to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the raspberries, tea bags and lemon juice. Cover and steep for 3 minutes. Strain; discard berries and tea bags.
- Transfer tea to a large container or pitcher. Refrigerate until chilled. Serve over ice.
This is fantastic. I like the fact that it doesn't have artificial flavors and colors. I used Lipton decaf tea bags and Splenda. Will be making this often. Thanks for posting this looneytunesfan. Made for Comfort Cafe - Winter 2010.
Very good! I love bottled (Snapple/Lipton) flavored teas. But they are so expensive that I thought I would try making my own from this recipe. Next time I will cut the sugar back a bit (maybe 1 to 1 1/4 cup?). I used 5 large decaf tea bags and let the bags & berries soak for approx. 8-10 minutes. Other than being slightly too sweet for my taste - this recipe was very good! I will be making it again and again! Thank you!
Great tea! I used splenda in place of sugar and 4 family tea bags in place of the individual. Thanks, looneytunesfan!
