Raspberry Sun Tea Recipe

Raspberry Sun Tea Recipe

Written by Cheyenne W, blog writer. Sun Tea Recipe by Kelly Gibson.

 

As we say goodbye to the freezing winter weather of the past few months and say hello to brutal Arizona hot weather, we may be wondering “What is the best drink to cool us off in this blazing heat?” Some of us may spring for cold soft drinks and sugar filled hydration drinks. But these drinks can cause far more harm than good and are often loaded with caffeine which leads to us feeling even more dehydrated than before. They are also full of dyes and other harsh chemicals that can cause health problems both in short term and long term. A much more simple and healthy option to this problem is a refreshing, homemade Raspberry Sun Tea recipe!  This delicious raspberry sun tea recipe is great for the famous Arizona heat waves we experience yearly and will leave you feeling quenched without all the harsh chemicals.

Raspberry Sun Tea Recipe over Ice

Instructions:
• Add water to the pitcher.
• Add the bags of tea then set the pitcher in direct sunlight for about 1-2 hours. Alternatively, you may put it in the shade for 5 hours if you are concerned about UV rays.
• Remove the tea bags from the pitcher. Put the raspberries in a medium sized or large bowl and add maple syrup to sweeten them.
• Mash the raspberries completely so they can be easily incorporated.
• Refrigerate immediately, then drink in 1-2 hours; Or, pour the tea immediately into a glass and stir well over ice.  Discard after 24 hours or if you notice any syrupy strands in the tea.

This refreshing tea can make even the most blistering of weather more enjoyable. It can be enjoyed be one person or be the main drink at a large gathering of friends and family as an alternative to large boxes of soda and beer that can be filled with calories and chemical dyes. Serve at any occasion that you might want to celebrate or to make a normal day better.
