DIRECTIONS

  • In a 4qt pot, combine water & sugar. This is the time to add a vanilla bean or your whole spice of choice. Bring to a boil.
  • Turn off heat & add tea leaves. Cover & let stand to steep & cool an hour or so.
  • When somewhat cooled, add fresh raspberries. Continue to let steep/cool a couple more hours.
  • Mash raspberries to be sure all juice is extracted. Pour through a fine mesh strainer, pushing on solids to get all the liquid, into a 2qt. pitcher. Add lemon or lime slices, if desired.
  • Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
