How to Make Iced Raspberry Green Tea Limeade

While most of the country tends to enjoy iced tea as a summer time drink, here in Florida we can enjoy a refreshing iced tea beverage year-round! There are many fun variations on the classic sweet tea as well, including drinks made with a different type of tea or with other fruit flavorings. For instance, this iced raspberry green tea limeade, which is very easy to make:

  • Ingredients (Serves 4-6)

    • 4 cups water

    • 1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries

    • ½ cup white sugar

    • Zest of one lime

    • 4 green tea bags

    • ½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice (typically about 4-6 limes)

  • Directions

    • Bring the water, raspberries, sugar, and lime zest to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved (about a minute), then remove the pan from the heat.

    • Add the green tea bags and let them steep for one minute. Remove the tea bags.

    • Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.

    • Strain the mixture through a fine strainer or sieve, and discard the solids. Let the liquid cool to room temperature, about 20-30 minutes, then stir in the fresh lime juice. Pour over ice in individual glasses, and garnish with a lime wedge and/or raspberry if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Following this recipe, you can easily beat the heat with a refreshing drink while relaxing in your PepperTree apartment by The Villages, FL.
