This fresh raspberry iced tea is bursting with tangy flavor! It’s easy to make with real berries, ideal for casual sipping or entertaining.


  • 8 cups water, divided
  • 6 black tea bags
  • 2 cups frozen* or fresh raspberries (8 ounces), plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 3/4 cup sugar


  1. In a saucepan, heat 4 cups water to a simmer. Turn off the heat and add the tea bags. Allow to steep for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the raspberries*, lemon juice, sugar and 4 cups water in a blender and blend until smooth. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl, using a spatula to push the liquid through (discard the seeds; this takes a few minutes to complete). 
  3. When the tea is steeped, remove the bags and pour it into the bowl with the raspberry water. Allow to cool until room temperature, about 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a pitcher and refrigerate at least 2 hours before drinking. Stores for up to 4 days.


*We prefer frozen berries because it’s much more economical and the flavor is great. Feel free to use fresh if you have them! If you’d like, save out a handful of the berries for garnishing the pitcher before blending.
