Blackberry Iced Tea

Do you ever try the drinks a restaurant server suggests?  They usually suggest a mango tea or strawberry lemonade.  The other day at dinner the server suggested a blackberry tea and I was feeling spunky and tried it.  It was pretty yummy and I went home and tried to recreate it.  My version uses frozen berries but I am guessing restaurants use a syrup to make things easier.

What you need:

  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, thawed
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • Pinch of baking soda
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 6 Lipton tea bags
  • 3 1/2 cups cold water

Combine blackberries and sugar in large bowl. Crush blackberries with wooden spoon. Add baking soda. Set aside.


Boil 4 cups of water and add tea bags; cover and let stand 3 minutes. Discard tea bags.



Pour tea over blackberry mixture; let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Pour tea through a colander into a bowl pressing berries to remove excess juice, discard solids. Add 3 1/2 cups cold water, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cover and chill until ready to serve.



This tea is great to serve by the pool or after a long day working in the yard.  I hope you enjoy!
