Refreshing and flavorable Blackberry Mint Iced Tea.
I have some blackberries that I've been trying to use. They are wonderful sweet blackberries straight from Arkansas. I've got a busy day planned and not enough time for baking, which is what I'd like to do with them. But, it's summer, insanely hot, so what is more perfect than iced tea? Made the southern way of course.
Let's Get Started:
Blackberry Mint Iced Tea
3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, thawed
1 1/2 cups sugar
fresh mint leaves
Pinch of baking soda (keeps tea from tasting bitter)
4 cups boiling water
2 family-size tea bags
2 1/2 cups cold water
