My raspberries have begun, but will not be as plentiful as last year, need to buy some new canes it appears, there were a lot of dead canes and a whole lot of thistles!! sweaty weeding in that mess for sure!

Preparation

In large heatproof measure or bowl, steep tea in 8 cups (2 L) boiling water for 4 minutes. Discard bags.



Meanwhile, in large saucepan, bring raspberries, sugar and 1 cup (250 mL) water to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring, until raspberries break up. Add to tea; let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.



Strain through cheesecloth-lined sieve into pitcher, pressing solids only gently so beverage remains clear. Serve with ice cubes.
