This iced tea is made with fresh raspberries and powdered lemonade mix, which you can buy online, or use a combination of lemon juice and additional sugar to substitute.
This recipe is SOOOooo good!! Wow! Okay, I did make some changes... I used one gallon sized tea bag (I felt that three was a *little* excessive!), I also didn't boil the whole gallon of water (just a little and filled the pitcher up the rest of the way with cold) I also didn't have any lemonade powder, so I used the frozen stuff. Thanks so much for the recipe! I'll make it again for sure! - 12 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was pretty good, lots of people enjoyed it. I found that I needed to leave the tea bags in way longer, or else it doesn't taste like tea at all. We left them in overnight, and we used all three of them. We also added a little bit more sugar, it was quite tart. The raspberry flavour was really really good. Next time, we are going to try it with real lemons instead of powdered lemonade, I think it might improve the taste a little bit. Great recipe!

This was good, but the next time I make it I will only steep my tea bags for 3 minutes rather than five. I found that after 5 minutes, the resulting tea was a little bitter for my taste. I used Splenda and Crystal Light lemonade powder to make this sugar-free for my diabetic hubby. - 09 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
