Fresh ripe raspberries and tea together, what a wonderful combination. Staying hydrated is important – and I do like to have something different to drink from time to time. I’ve used black tea for this – however green will work as well.
1 cup raspberries
5 cups water (2 boiling)
2 tablespoons loose leaf black tea of choice
juice of 1 large lemon
1/4 cup sugar
Bring 2 cups of the water to a boil, and while that is going – place the raspberries in a food processor or blender. Once blended add the sugar to them. Strain and discard the seeds, adding the raspberry juice to the other 3 cups of water. Add the lemon juice to the water. Steep the tea in the boiling water for 4-5 minutes when ready, then discard the tea leaves. Combine the boiling water to the fruit water. Chill until ready to serve. Serve over ice. Enjoy!
