Bright and colourful, this tea is intriguingly tart and fruity. Serve with lime slices or raspberry ice cubes (see “Nice Ice,” below).

- 4 tea (such as Darjeeling or orange pekoe)
- 2 cups raspberries fresh or thawed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
MethodIn large heatproof measure or bowl, steep tea in 8 cups (2 L) boiling water for 4 minutes. Discard bags.
Meanwhile, in large saucepan, bring raspberries, sugar and 1 cup (250 mL) water to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring, until raspberries break up. Add to tea; let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.
Strain through cheesecloth-lined sieve into pitcher, pressing solids only gently so beverage remains clear. Serve with ice cubes.
