Blackberry and Mint Iced Tea

Blackberry and Mint Iced Tea

  • 6 Lipton "cold brew" tea bags
  • 3/4 gallon cold water
  • 3/4 cup Blackberry Syrup (click for recipe in previous post)
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces fresh blackberries
  • handful of mint leaves
  • ice


Place the tea bags in a gallon pitcher and add water.  Let steep, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.  Remove the tea bags, pressing to extract as much flavor as possible.  Add the blackberry syrup, lemon juice, lemon slices, blackberries and mint, and fill the pitcher the rest of the way with ice.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour, to let the flavors infuse into the tea, then serve.


Yields 1 gallon.
