Are you ready for homemade raspberry iced tea? I surely hope so. I love tea, hot, cold, flavored. I drink it all day every day. I’m all about moderation, but sugary drinks are something I never feel like drinking. If given the choice, I’d much rather have my sugar in the form of iced cream. You know what I’m talking about. If flavored and sweet tea was something I really craved, I would definitely drink it, but I don’t. I just enjoy it on occasion… enter this homemade raspberry iced tea.
It’s lightly sweet, lightly flavored and everything you could hope for in a refreshing summer drink. You can make a single serving under 5 minutes too. Sometimes it’s so nice to drink something different! Let’s be real for a second, I would drink 12 of these a day if it didn’t have caffeine. I guess I could by decaffeinated tea… but what would be the point in that?
You can check out the how-to video below and also the recipe. There are lots of health benefits to tea too, seriously, just Google it 😉 Something or another about antioxidants. I know, information overload right there, so let’s move on.
How to make good iced tea:
- 2 black tea bags
- ½ cup of raspberries
- 1½ cup of water
- 2 mint leaves
- Bring ½ cup of water to a boil and pour over 2 tea bags. Let the tea brew for at least 3 minutes.
- Meanwhile, blend the raspberries with the 1 cup of water and mint leaves until smooth.
- Once blended, pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds and mint pieces.
- Pour mixture into a glass filled with ice and pour the black tea over top.
- Stir and serve!
