Raspberry Ice Tea

This is a great beverage on a hot day.

I've used decaffeinated tea bags, but you can use regular tea bags if desired.

8 cups cold water
3 large tea bags 
1/4 - 1/2 c. fresh raspberries

Turn on the kitchen faucet to cold and let run for  30 seconds - 1 minute.

Fill kettle with cold water, place tea kettle and place on stove.

Turn stove burner on to high, bring water to a boil.

Using a strainer, rinse raspberries under cold running water.

Set aside a few raspberries for garnish.

When water begins to boil turn off stove, 
place tea bags and raspberries in kettle.

Steep tea for a few minutes to desired strength.

Remove tea bags and raspberries from tea kettle and let tea cool.

Fill a pitcher with ice. 

Pour cooled tea in the pitcher over ice. 

Place pitcher in refrigerator until ready to serve.

To serve: place ice in the bottom of 4 - 6 
clean glasses.

Add raspberries and pour tea over ice.

Add sweetener if desired.

Serves 4 - 6.
