Really yummy! I omitted the sugar so that guests can sweeten to their own taste. I ended up with more of the raspberry puree than I needed, so I froze the leftovers in ice cube trays. Now I just add a cube to a glass of regular iced tea and I have instant Raspberry-Lime Iced Tea. Brilliant! P.S. It helps to zap the cube for about 10 seconds in the microwave before adding to the glass.
DH and I thought this was a gorgeous red drink, but it didn't quite pack the flavor we expected. It tasted like watered-down tea with pureed raspberries. We couldn't taste the lime juice at all. Also, I found it difficult to strain the pureed raspberries when they were still a little frozen, so I would recommend completely defrosting or using fresh berries. Because I couldn't strain the raspberries, I ended up adding them to the pitcher seeds and all. The texture was nice--a little like a smoothie. Even though it was not what we expected, it was still yummy and refreshing on a hot summer day. Thanks for a lovely idea. (Made for Summer Comfort Cafe 2009)
We really enjoyed this and it is a great recipe that makes a smaller amount perfect for two. I used green tea. Definite keeper. Made for summer Comfort Cafe
This is a delicious recipe. All I had on hand was a package of tripe berry (raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry). I used that. Also used Splenda and cut it to 4 tablespoons. Didn't strain it. Didn't even have a blender so I just mashed them up good. It is beautiful and delicious. Will keep some in the refrigerator during hot weather. Thank you so much!
*Sluuuuuuuuurp!* Mmmm! This stuff is DELICIOUS!! I made with frozen organic raspberries, fresh organic limes, organic turbanado sugar and china orange pekoe black tea. I didn't bother straining it, and I don't find it at all offensive to drink. The raspberry is the dominant flavor, with a hint of lime! Yum! I don't find this to have strong tea flavor- but it is there, just a hint of it.. lovely. It is a beautiful ruby red and has amazing flavor. I love this! It's almost smoothie-like, but more drinkable. I will surely make this again.
I selected this recipe to kick off our new Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup game and I'm glad I did! I brewed the tea yesterday morning and chilled it to make up later in the afternoon. Initially, I had planned to make only half a recipe as I only had 1 cup of raspberries, but decided to make the whole recipe and use 1/2 cup of blackberries for the raspberries I was short as my daughters had a friend over and I knew half a recipe would not be enough for everyone. I'm sure glad I did as we all loved it and the empty pitcher went into the wash before we all had our fill! I loved the deep rich red color of it as well. I'll certainly be making this often this summer, especially when we're planning cookouts. Thank you for sharing such an easy and great tasting recipe!
