Fresh raspberries and southern sweet tea come together
to make one delicious, refreshing and pure Raspberry Sweet Iced Tea AND no simple syrup needed!!
No artificial flavors here.. just pure homemade awesomeness!
You can use Splenda ( like I would do for my brother who is diabetic) in place of the sugar if needed 🙂
Not only is this tea gorgeous but it tastes fantastic too!
