And I don’t mind admitting to you that I’ve been missing out! Quite honestly, I didn’t realize just how much better  homemade iced tea is compared to the store-bought kind.

    Hi!
    This recipe for iced tea sounds so good! Usually I just brew hot black tea and then pour it into a glass with ice, but adding the homemade raspberry syrup is such a great idea! I’m going to try it 😀 Thanks for sharing <3 The photos are lovely!

      Hi Luisa! The homemade syrup is really simple to make and nothing beats homemade. I’m glad you’ll be trying. Don’t forget to adjust the sugar for sweetness 🙂 Happy iced tea making!

    Oh why did I miss this recipe? We went to a raspberry farm this weekend with the kids and I had no idea what to do with them, so we brought a few home to nibble. This sounds so refreshing Jelica and sooooooo delicious. Pinning so the next time we go I’ll be able to wow everyone

        It’s actually a lot of fun, but quite prickly so you need to wear gloves 😉
