  1. 2 Herbal Raspberry Tea Bags
  2. 3 Herbal Peach or OrangeTea Bags or you can use a combo - I used 2 peach, 1 orange
  3. 3 cups of Hot Water
  4. 1 Lemon, juiced - strain seeds
  5. 2 Tbsp of Stevia or Sugar
  6. 2 Tbsp of Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar
  7. 2 Tbsp of dried mint soaked in 1/2 cup of hot water or fresh mint
  8. 1-1/2 cup of strawberries, optional
  9. Sliced oranges
  10. Cold water
  11. Ice
Think of this recipe as if you were writing a book - one simple chapter at a time
  1. Chapter 1 - let's make the tea base.
  2. Place the tea bags and the 3 cups of hot water into a pitcher. Set aside to seep. The longer you let stand - the stronger the flavor.
  3. Chapter 2 - let's make the lemon simple syrup.
  4. Wash the lemon. Place the lemon into the microwave for 15 seconds. Warming the lemon will release the juice.
  5. Cut the lemon in half and juice the lemon into a small bowl. Place back into the microwave for about 30 seconds. Add the sugar and stir until sugars are dissolved. Set aside.
  6. Chapter 3 - the mint. If you have fresh mint - awesome. Clean and separate leaves (you decide the amount). Set aside. If you don't have fresh mint - place 1/2 cup of hot water in a small bowl and add the dried mint, making sure that all mint is moistened. Set aside.
  7. Chapter 4 (optional) - the strawberries. Clean and hull. Slice in half. They could be used just like this and be very pretty in the pitcher as they add texture and flavor. I took the strawberries and gave them a couple of twirls in my NutriBullet blender until it was smooth to create more of syrup.
  8. Chapter 5 - the orange. Wash. Cut the ends of the orange off. Then cut the orange in half and slice into thin slices.
  9. Chapter 6 - let's remove the tea bags. Give a gentle squeeze to the bags before throwing them away.
  10. Chapter 7 - let's put it together....Combine in a pitcher
  11. Fill 1/4 of the pitcher with ice
  12. Squeeze the ends of the orange - waste nothing
  13. Add the orange slices and strawberries
  14. Strain the mint water into the pitcher
  15. Add the lemon simple syrup
  16. Fill the pitcher with cold water
  17. Give a gentle stir to combine all ingredients.
  18. Fill a glass full of ice, pour and enjoy!
  1. If you enjoy an unsweetened tea - the sugar can be removed.
  2. Note: While I have everything out - I'll double this recipe and combine the tea, lemon simple syrup, mint water, and pureed strawberries into a large mason jar. Store in the refrigerator. Then when I want another pitcher of tea, I just add the ice, water and orange.

3 cups of hot water and tea bags seeping 


 The lemon syrup has been made and the mint water is seeping before being strained.  I love these heart measuring spoons my mom bought me years ago.
