Serving Raspberry Mint Tea in Summer

(Post modified with new photos on 8/26/22.)

Are you planning a get-together with your friends for a manicure or movie night? Serve this tea along with your favorite cookies or snacks for a wonderful refreshment.

I first made this tea for a women’s Bible study at church one year. It went over so well and was such an easy recipe to make, it’s been a favorite of mine ever since.

With only five ingredients (one of them water), it’s quite simple to make. So grab your raspberries, mint leaves, and your favorite black tea and get ready to enjoy this summer refreshment! This recipe will serve 4-6 people. If you need to serve more, simply double or triple it as needed.

 

Ingredients Needed to Make Raspberry Mint Tea

(See full recipe at the bottom of this post.)

  • Your favorite black brewed tea (Like Lipton, or a favorite loose leaf tea.)
  • water
  • fresh raspberries
  • granulated sugar
  • mint leaves

 

Instructions for Making this Recipe

Brew a pot (6-8 cups) of your favorite black tea. Lipton bags (not instant) works well, or if you enjoy loose leaf teas, may I suggest Yunan Golden Special, English Breakfast, Orange Pekoe Ceylon or Assam Mangalam, all from Tealyra. Steep tea for 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour two cups of water in a small saucepan. Add 1 cup of fresh raspberries and 3 tablespoons granulated sugar. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 8-10 minutes.

Allow each to cool and pour both tea and strained raspberry mixture into a large carafe.

You’ll want to strain the raspberry syrup with a fine-mesh strainer so that you don’t have seeds in your drink. Simply hold the strainer over the carafe as you pour it into the tea. 

Add in mint leaves and stir to combine. With a muddler or long handled wooden spoon, gently press on the mint leaves and twisting to bring out the oils and herbal essence.

Serve Cookies and Raspberry Mint Tea for an Afternoon Snack

When ready to serve, pour into clear glasses filled with ice cubes. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and raspberries. This recipe will serve 4-6 people.
