Raspberry Sweet Tea

Over the past couple of years I have discovered my love for all things made with black tea!  Here's one of my absolute favorite ways to drink tea - made with raspberry tea & sweetened!  The perfect treat for a warm day.
Raspberry Sweet Tea Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoon raspberry loose leaf raspberry tea
  • 1 tablespoon loose leaf black tea
  • 4 tablespoons white sugar, honey, or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, optional
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 4 cups cold water

Instructions:

 Heat up water in a kettle to boiling.

In a 1 litre/quart mason jar, add raspberry tea, black tea leaves, sugar, and lemon juice.  Add 4 cups (1 litre/quart) of boiling water to the jar.  Stir.

Steep for 5 minutes.

Strain the tea leaves out and transfer evenly to two 1 litre mason jars.  Add 2 cups of cold water to each jar and tuck into the fridge to chill.  Once chilled, serve with ice & enjoy!

Concentrate Alternate:

Alternatively, don't add the cold water and chill the sweet raspberry tea concentrate in the fridge until ready to drink.  Fill a glass halfway and then fill to the top with cold water & ice & serve!
