Raspberry Iced Tea

Sharing is caring!

Raspberry Iced Tea is a refreshing and easy way to dress up your iced tea. Fresh raspberries add the perfect amount of sweetness to each sip of this flavored tea recipe

If you are looking for even more tasty drinks, you are in luck. Sip on my fruit infused vitamin water, the famous Pink Drink from Starbucks, or even my cherry pie moonshine for adults. 

Raspberry Iced Tea

Get your rocking chair ready because it’s exactly where you will want to be sitting while sipping this delicious Raspberry Iced Tea.  There is nothing better to cool down on a hot summer day.

 I waited many years to finally have a great porch that is just perfect for enjoying a cool breeze, rocking in my rocking chair and sipping on my iced tea.  There is nothing like a cup of homemade raspberry iced tea. 

This tea is super easy to make and you will be making it often.  Keep a batch in the fridge at all times.  You just never know when the breeze will be blowing and your rocking chair will be calling.

Can I Use Artificial Sweetner In Replace of Sugar 

If you want to use an artificial sweetener to replace sugar, Iwould say that would be fine. I haven’t done it but what I would do is sweeten after you’re done cooking the tea and berries. 

Once your raspberry tea is strained, then add sweetener to taste. Some sweeteners when cooked can alter the flavor and offer a bitter flavor. So add sweetener to taste to fit how sweet you want your tea to be. 

Can I Use Frozen Raspberries For This Flavored Tea 

You are more than welcome to reach for frozen raspberries in replace of fresh. Just toss them in frozen, no need to thaw first. 

Most berries are frozen at their peak, so the raspberries will most likely have an amazing flavor to them. And since it is strained, you don’t have to worry that frozen berries are soggy compared to fresh. 

So if you find a great deal on berries and want to freeze them yourself to keep on hand go right ahead for this sweetened tea later down the line. 

Can I Double The Recipe 

Want to make extra? No problem. Just reach for a pot large enough to hold all the liquid. You are more than welcome to make as much of this as you plan to serve.

It will keep for a bit in your fridge as well. I like to drink it within about 4 days of making it. Always just use your best judgement. 

What Is The Best Tea to Use 

Honestly, this is a personal preference. Everyone has a favorite tea or most do I should say. Feel free to buy any brand of tea you like. I tend to reach for a black tea but if you have a certain iced tea brand in mind, go for it. 

Now, I haven’t tried this with green tea. I normally just use a darker tea as it pairs nice with the sweet from sugar and the berries.

My best guess (since it was several years ago) was at Marshalls. I love to shop there for random cute kitchen items.
