Refreshing Blackberry Iced Tea

Have you ever had blackberry iced tea? I love all kinds of tea, but this one is definitely one of my favorites! I am excited to share with you!


Refreshing, aromatic iced green tea made with fresh blueberries and blackberries. This iced tea had the best mild berry flavor from the addition of an easy homemade blueberry-blackberry syrup. It’s a mildly sweet tea but can be adjusted to your own personal sweetness preference.

Make sure to strain the pureed blackberry mixture to get rid of seeds and it will be a wonderful addition to minty fresh tea or lemonade. Brewed mint tea can substitute for black tea and fresh mint leaves in this refreshing drink.
