I’ve lived in the south my entire life. That means I was pretty much raised on Sweet Tea. Black tea, served over ice, swimming in sugar. It’s amazing. I’m not, however, a sweet tea purist. Somewhere in my 30s I stopped ordering sweet tea and started ordering unsweetened. I feared immediate revocation of my Southern Card. Luckily, I was allowed to keep it. With the knowledge that I could drink other things and maintain my credibility, I branched out into flavored teas…and dare I say it…hot teas. Hot teas are not ideal for summer refreshment, though. It’s definitely iced tea season.
When it’s a gazillion degrees outside there’s nothing better than a glass of iced tea. Lipton’s Cold Brew tea bags can be brewed with cold water. In five minutes. That means you’re never more than five minutes away from the perfect glass of iced tea at any time. Pretty sweet, right?
It’s also crazy easy to make your own raspberry iced tea. Just start with six ounces of fresh raspberries.
Muddle the raspberries and add to your pitcher, along with 8 cups of cold water and two Lipton Cold Brew tea bags. Dunk the bags and stir frequently, allowing the tea to cold brew for at least five minutes. Strain the tea, sweeten to taste and serve over ice. Fresh brewed raspberry iced tea in minutes!
