Raspberry-Green Tea

I love Raspberry Tea that you get in restaurants but wanted to make my own, w/ few ingredients. Couldn’t find a recipe I wanted to try so I made one up & it turned out great! That’s a first, usually my made-up recipes aren’t great.

1 c. frozen/fresh raspberries
2 c. water
Blend & strain(I used a Gracie Jui Jitsu juice bag, or try a strainer). You could also use a juicer.

2 c. water + water to 2 quarts
tea bags, 1 iced tea & 2-3 green tea(mix & match)
Warm 2 c. water & tea bags in small pan until steaming. Steep bags to desired strength. Pour tea into pitcher w/ ice. Add water to make 2 quarts.

Mix Raspberry juice & 1 quart prepared, chilled iced tea. Add sweetener of choice (Stevia for me) until you get your desired sweetness. Voila!
