Raspberries and Cream Flavored Iced Tea

Iced tea is essential during summertime.  It tastes good, keeps you cool, and is easy to make.  I’ve lost track of the number of gallons of tea I’ve made so far this summer.

If you know me, you’ll know that the one thing I love to do is experiment.  A bit of this, a bit of that, and I’m a happy woman.  I apply the same philosophy to making iced tea.

I didn’t want to get into a rut by making the same, plain old iced tea all summer long, so I decided to get creative.  The idea of mixology works just as well for tea as it does for other beverages.

I headed out to Walmart to pick up a few interesting flavors of Bigelow Tea to use in my iced tea recipe.

Since I wanted to make something a bit wild and fruity, I selected Bigelow Chamomile Vanilla and Honey Herbal Tea plus Bigelow Red Raspberry Herbal Tea.

By combining the Bigelow Red Raspberry Herbal Tea with a tea that contained vanilla, I was able to get raspberry flavor (of course), while the vanilla in the Bigelow Chamomile Vanilla and Honey Herbal Tea would bring out a note of cream.  Then, I tossed in a few fresh raspberries and a few decorative drops of milk.  It’s a tea that tastes like drinking raspberries dipped in cream!

If you’re a traditionalist, feel free to put your milk in first.  Does it show that I watch a lot of British TV?

Tips for Making Raspberries and Cream Flavored Iced Tea

  • Although this recipe has a taste that will remind you of cream (milk plus vanilla flavor in the tea), don’t actually attempt to use cream.  The higher fat content causes it to separate when it hits the tea.  It tastes fine, but looks odd.
  • You can add a little vanilla extract if you like a stronger kick of vanilla.
  • If you’d like to serve a crowd, you can make a large pitcher of tea ahead of time, but don’t add the raspberries or the milk until you serve individual glasses.
  • Try other flavors of Bigelow Tea for different fruit and cream flavored iced teas.
  • Serve with scones for a special treat!
