"This tea recipe reminded me of something you find at a restaurant. Except it's less an expensive to make it yourself. Very refreshing and easy to put together."

"Very tasty! I did not have any raspberries, so used blueberries instead. Also omitted the sugar because of I am diabetic! Very good and will make again trying with other fruits!"

"I'd made this recipe twice, but the 2nd time around was when I just used the frozen raspberries! The first time, I hadn't had the raspberries available, so I'd used a frozen berry medley. This beverage is a keeper and is VERY refreshing! Thank you, Lois McGrady!"
