Ingredients

  • 8 cups water divided
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 black tea bags
  • 2 pints raspberries or 4 cups frozen
  • Fresh raspberries for serving
  • Lemon slices for serving

Instructions

  • In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Add tea bags and steep the tea for 10 minutes, then discard tea bags. Allow the tea to come to room temperature, then transfer to a large pitcher and set in the refrigerator.
  • In another saucepan, bring remaining water to a boil. Add the raspberries, reduce heat, then simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Use a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth to strain the raspberry liquid and discard pulp. Add raspberry juice to the tea mixture in the pitcher and stir to combine.
  • Serve cold over ice with fresh raspberries and lemon slices, if desired.
