Paleo – A Respectable Summer Drink

Raspberry Black Tea

Word Press is being a pain today and not letting me do what I want. I barely was able to get this picture in, so I guess I’ll be happy with that despite its enormous size.

Anyway…. drinks on Paleo.  I’m bored.  Water and hibiscus tea only go so far.  My husband drinks Sweet Leaf Green Tea like crazy, but Target recently quit carrying it, and supposedly it has been purchased by Nestle.  Not a good sign, plus it had sugar, so probably not the best thing for him to be drinking anyway. He tried to make a replacement yesterday…. green tea, honey, mint.  No go.

The swill looking picture above is my attempt at a sweet summertime drink that’s not too far off the Paleo track.  I boiled some water.  Gosh I wish I was better at measurements.  I think it was a 2 quart pot.  I used 3 tea bags of black tea (English breakfast tea) after I took it off the burner and let them steep about 3-4 minutes.  Then I added 6 oz of fresh pureed raspberries and 1 tbsp of raw honey.  I stirred it up, added some ice to cool it down, and poof, I got the above, a raspberry black tea, seeds and all.  It’s pretty good.  I’m not sure how long it will keep.  I imagine we’ll have to finish it in 24-48 hours.
