Reviews forIced Raspberry Tea
"Delicious! I made the recipe smaller as I had less people to serve. Thank you, Lois, for sharing this recipe."
"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!"
"This has a great flavor. I cut the recipe in half as I did not need 4 quarts of tea and it came out perfect! This is extremely refreshing!"
"My first ever attempt at home made iced tea and it was absolutely perfect. This recipe is a keeper!"
"One of my family's favorites!"
