"I have been searching for a the perfect Raspberry Ice Tea and my sister turned me on to this one. This is it!!!! It does need to sit a bit to become extremely cold and when it does- perfection. Thank you very, very much Lois McGrady!!!!!!"
"This is really good. I used raspberry tea bags as well. Great flavor."
"My husband liked this. I thought it was OK."
"This tea is delicious. It can be made a day ahead of an event and kept in the fridge. I made ice cubes w/ the tea so as not to dilute the drink w/ regular water ice cubes. Poured the tea into individual wine glasses w/ pink ice cubes and a thin slice of lemon on the rim for presentation. Will definitely make again!"
"I made this last night...one word - AWESOME!!"
"I made this last night and it was awesome. I did use 12 teabags instead of 10. (I like a little stronger tea). Thanks for posting this..."
