Is There Caffeine In Raspberry Iced Tea
Yes. This tea is made with a black tea, so that will be where you get the caffeine from. If you want a caffeine-free tea, then use a different type of tea bag.
Is There Sugar In Raspberry Iced Tea
Yes. If you want this to be sugar-free you are welcome to use your favorite sweetener. Just make sure that when you go and make it, you convert the sweetener to the sugar content.
Can I Use Frozen Raspberries
Yes. You are welcome to use frozen raspberries in making this tea. Most of the time the raspberries are frozen at prime flavor, so they will work great at giving this recipe the fresh fruit flavor.
Then top with fresh raspberries if you want to serve.
How Long Will This Iced Tea Recipe Store In The Fridge
You can store this iced tea recipe in the fridge for 3-4 days. With the fruit in the homemade iced tea, it will go bad faster than regular iced tea. So just use your best judgment on the quality on the fresh iced tea recipe.
Can I Add In Different Fruit To The Recipe
Yes. Feel free to add in a variety of fruit or other berries. We love playing around with adding in other fruit like blackberries, strawberries, and more. Just use the same amount of fruit as the recipe, and mix and match to what fits you.
Mmm! I can’t wait to make this again soon. Summertime is in full swing and we are constantly playing in the backyard or spending the afternoon at the pool! Anything cool and refreshing is definitely a win this time of year! Plus, a yummy treat to cool off is always welcome in my books!
