This Lime Raspberry Iced Tea is the perfect refreshing summer drink for the whole family.

Humm raspberries… Did I mention I love them? Yeah…like a hundred times. When I made this raspberry tiramisu for instance. So I’m not going to say it again, I think you get it. I love raspberries.

So naturally, I love this easy Lime Raspberry Iced Tea too. It’s refreshing and tasty. This Iced Tea is made with green tea and a homemade raspberry syrup is a good change from boring basic iced tea.

Lime Raspberry Iced Tea is the perfect drink for a warm summer evening al fresco or to bring to a BBQ party. Like for the 4th of July.

Even if it’s not summer where you live, this Iced Green Tea Recipe will be good anyway. I’m the living proof that season doesn’t matter — because I had a blanket on me when I had my first glass of Raspberry Iced Tea.

Ingredients

For the syrup:

  • 2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup lime juice about 2 1/2 limes
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup water

For the iced tea:

  • 6 green tea bags black tea works fine too
  • 6-9 cups water
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • ice cubes

Instructions

For the Raspberry Syrup:

  1. In a blender, combine raspberries, lime juice, honey and 1/4 cup water. Blend until perfectly smooth.

For the Raspberry Iced Tea:

  1. Place green tea bags in a large heatproof pitcher. Pour the simmering water into the pitcher and let it steep for at least 5 minutes (at least 10 if using green tea). Remove the tea bags and discard. Refrigerate the tea until cool.

  2. When the tea has cooled, combine it with the raspberry syrup. The quantity of syrup varies according to your taste. I used about 1 tbsp per cup.

  3. Add mint leaves and mix well. Refrigerate for at least one hour to let the flavors develop. If you don't serve it the same day, discard mint leaves or the flavor will be too strong

  4. To serve, fill glasses with ice and pour raspberry tea, without mint leaves. Sweeten to your liking.

Recipe Notes

You will have some raspberry lime syrup leftovers.
