Blackbery Iced Tea
- 3-4 tea bags (I used black, earl gray)
- 6-8 cups water (depending how strong you like your tea)
- 16 ounces fresh or frozen blackberries
- 1/2 -3/4 cup sugar
To make the blackberry syrup: place the blackberries in a saucepan, and add the sugar and 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to medium immediately. Cook for a minute, and then reduce the mixture to low until it is close to liquified. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain the blackberries with mesh or a food mill to eliminate the seeds. Pour a few tablespoons of the syrup into each glass of iced tea.
