"I do recall making this recipe when it was featured in TOH! I found it to be delicious and VERY refreshing! Thank you all for sharing what you experienced with this beverage recipe! I didn't have the actual raspberries, so I'd used a tub of raspberry Crystal-Light with part of the water and used the balance of the water with the teabags called for. I recall using 3/4 cup of frozen lemonade concentrate along with the Crystal Light. The sugar and teabags I'd kept as is!
