Something else. I thought this recipe would be very sweet and bubbly, instead it was very refreshing and not very sweet. The sugar isn't enough to really sweeten the tea, it just cuts the bite. I used the juice of frozen crushed raspberries and that wasn't overly sweet either. The fizz of the sparkling water was diluted by the tea, leaving the tea with just a little tingle but no sparkle, bubbles or fizz. All in all its a very tasty iced tea for those who don't care for the cloyingly sweet kind. Its unlike any of the raspberry teas I have had in the past. Thanks for sharing Scott! - 15 Sep 2008
