Raspberry Flavored Green Tea

raspberry flavored green tea

I am an avid water drinker.  I am one of those people who doesn’t tire of it.  I drink it all day long.  But I know there are a LOT of you who fall into one of these categories:

  • Tolerates water
  • Avoids water
  • Will drink anything BUT water

My husband and kids drink a lot of water too, but there are times when we all just want something else.

I don’t have a lot of drink recipes on this site but wanted to share a recipe I make for a Raspberry Flavored Green Tea, just in case you were looking for a little somethin somethin different yourself.

Green tea is my #2 go to when I’m not drinking water.  Since it’s summertime I don’t drink a whole lot of hot tea but still want the benefits green tea has to offer.  This tea does contain sugar so just be mindful that it isn’t something we drink everyday, but occasionally.

This is one of those recipes where it isn’t really a recipe because I just make it.  I had to slow myself down and write down what I do but it’s a taste kind of thing.

If you like your tea to have a stronger flavor then just leave the tea bags in longer.  If you prefer more of a fruity raspberry taste then, again, let them stay in longer.

Ingredients

4 cups water
4-5 green tea bags
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup raspberries

Instructions

  1. Start by creating a simple syrup. This is made by bringing equal parts sugar and water to a boil. We are going to make ours using 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar.
  2. Once it comes to a boil turn off the heat and add the remaining 3 1/2 cups water, tea bags, lemon and raspberries
  3. Let the tea bags seep anywhere from 5-10 minutes or until desired flavor is reached
  4. Pour the raspberry tea into a pitcher using a strainer so no raspberries or seeds get in the tea
  5. Serve over ice with a slice of lemon or lime and fresh raspberries
