  •  10 individual tea bags
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed and undrained
  •  3 tablespoons lime juice

Directions:

  2. Add tea bags; steep for 5-8 minutes. Discard tea bags. 
  3. In another saucepan, bring raspberries and remaining water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Strain and discard pulp. Add raspberry juice and lime juice to the tea. 
  4. Transfer to a large pitcher. Refrigerate until chilled. Yield: 15 servings.
