Raspberry Iced Tea
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
Makesabout 2 quarts
Hi...what do you use to strain the pulp? Would a coffee filter work? I haven't tried your recipe as yet, but I want to get the tea to taste as much like Peach Razzleberry Tea as possible, although not quite as sweet. Any suggestions?
I used jasmine black tea bags, added raspberries and blackberries. Deliciousness in a glass
Really simple and not too sweet. This way if people want to add more sugar; they can do so on their own.
This recipe was easy to make and very refreshing. I liked the fresh raspberry taste. It was flavorful, but not overpowering. I would add a little less sugar next time, as I thought it was a little sweet-even for sweet tea.
I used 4 cups of raspberries, but found the final product tasted more like raspberry juice than tea with raspberry flavor. The raspberries overpowered the tea. So I brewed 2 quarts of unsweetened tea and added 1/3 of this mixture to the 2 quarts of unsweetened tea. I then added some agave to taste, as the 2 quarts of tea was unsweetened. It was much more refreshing and like a traditional raspberry tea served at restaurants. If I make this again, I will only use 1 to 1/2 cups of raspberries.
This recipe has only four ingredients! It is so easy to make and tastes really good. It is not a super sweet tea, which is why I like it. I only had 2 cups of raspberries and I think the iced tea still turned out great. I think any fruit could replace the raspberries. I made it slightly different by adding the raspberries to all 8 cups of water and sugar and bringing it to a boil, being sure to mash the berries all up before adding the tea bags to let them steep. I then just strained everything while putting the tea into a pitcher. I made it also with 2 cups of peaches and it turned out great.
I do recall making this recipe when it was featured in TOH! I found it to be delicious and VERY refreshing! Thank you all for sharing what you experienced with this beverage recipe! I didn't have the actual raspberries, so I'd used a tub of raspberry Crystal-Light with part of the water and used the balance of the water with the teabags called for. I recall using 3/4 cup of frozen lemonade concentrate along with the Crystal Light. The sugar and teabags I'd kept as is!delowenstein
