This perfect summer time drink tastes so much better making it yourself then buying it pre-made.
Raspberry-Flavored Iced Tea Recipe
- 18 black tea bags (or 3/4 cups of loose tea)
- 2 qts water
- 2 qts ice as needed
- 3 cup raspberry flavored syrup more or less as desired
Bring the water to a boil in a large pot or teakettle. Afterward, remove it from heat, add in tea, and cover immediately.
Allow the tea to steep for 2-3 minutes. While the tea steeps, place the ice and syrup in a large pitcher.
Remove the tea bags or use a fine wire strainer as you slowly pour the tea over the ice and syrup. Add more ice as needed until the volume is doubled.
Stir the tea well to dissolve and distribute the syrup. Then refrigerate it for 15 minutes until it becomes thoroughly chilled.
Adjust the tea's flavor as desired with additional syrup and serve at once. Feel free to add ice cubes to the tea if you plan on bringing it to a picnic or if you wish to prevent it from diluting. Cheers!
