Made a pitcher of iced tea, sweetened, with a sliced up and slightly muddled lime. It’s divine. New favorite summer drink.

EDIT: After sitting in the fridge overnight, this got incredibly limey. I can’t even drink it now. It’s too strong and tart. Next time I’ll just use lime juice by itself.

Preparation
Iced 4 min, 45 sec

Sounds yummy – thanks for the tip of adding lime with raspberry black tea I’ve been wanting to make up a pitcher of a similar tea and have been uming and ahing over which fruit to put in with it.

I had a similar experience with raspberries over flavouring an iced tea pitcher I made up last Sunday – I put a whole stack of beautiful frozen raspberries in with Strawberries & Cream and Turkish Apple and it tasted delightful at first like it made the berry flavour just pop but by the end of the day it was really a raspberry drink. Sometimes a long infuse does not result in a great product.

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, chai, and pretty much any black tea from Fujian, China. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, sage, apple, coconut, raspberry, lychee, bergamot, osmanthus, cucumber, lavender, vanilla, cardamom, ginger, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.

You can assume that I’m preparing my tea using the Western method. I use zero-calorie sweeteners and in the hot months, I drink my tea almost exclusively iced.
