    Hi...what do you use to strain the pulp? Would a coffee filter work? I haven't tried your recipe as yet, but I want to get the tea to taste as much like Peach Razzleberry Tea as possible, although not quite as sweet. Any suggestions?

    Really simple and not too sweet. This way if people want to add more sugar; they can do so on their own.

    This recipe was easy to make and very refreshing. I liked the fresh raspberry taste. It was flavorful, but not overpowering. I would add a little less sugar next time, as I thought it was a little sweet-even for sweet tea.

    I used 4 cups of raspberries, but found the final product tasted more like raspberry juice than tea with raspberry flavor. The raspberries overpowered the tea. So I brewed 2 quarts of unsweetened tea and added 1/3 of this mixture to the 2 quarts of unsweetened tea. I then added some agave to taste, as the 2 quarts of tea was unsweetened. It was much more refreshing and like a traditional raspberry tea served at restaurants. If I make this again, I will only use 1 to 1/2 cups of raspberries.

    This recipe has only four ingredients! It is so easy to make and tastes really good. It is not a super sweet tea, which is why I like it. I only had 2 cups of raspberries and I think the iced tea still turned out great. I think any fruit could replace the raspberries. I made it slightly different by adding the raspberries to all 8 cups of water and sugar and bringing it to a boil, being sure to mash the berries all up before adding the tea bags to let them steep. I then just strained everything while putting the tea into a pitcher. I made it also with 2 cups of peaches and it turned out great.

    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!delowenstein
