Raspberry Iced TeaPour 3 cups of water into a pan. Add the sugar and bring to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Remove from stove, add the loose tea, and let it steep for 5 minutes.
4 cups of water
1/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons loose black tea
1 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
lemon slices and/or frozen whole raspberries for garnish (optional)
Put the raspberries and the remaining 1 cup of water in another pot. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute.
Strain the tea mixture into a pitcher. Strain the raspberries through a fine sieve into the tea mixture. Press the raspberries with the back of a spoon to remove as much juice as possible.
Cool and store in refrigerator. Serve over ice and garnish with half a lemon slice and several frozen raspberries. Enjoy!
