Rhubarb Mint Tea

A bumper crop of rhubarb and mint from my garden inspired me to create this thirst-quenching pick-me-up. Raspberries deepen the tea's vibrant red color, making the drinks a pretty addition to your table. —Laurie Bock, Lynden, Washington

    Made this twice so far as written. The rhubarb gives it a different flavor but we like it! A refreshing drink on a hot day!
