Spring Tea Party

Isn't this vintage image of two young girls at an outdoor tea cute? I just love the quaintness of it. It reminds me of the era of Jane Austen books.

~Raspberry Tea~

8 cups water, divided
3/4 cup sugar
6 small tea bags
3 cups unsweetened raspberries

In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Remove from the heat; add tea bags. Steep for 5-8 minutes. Discard tea bags. Add 4 cups water.

In another saucepan, bring raspberries and remaining water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Strain and discard pulp. Add raspberry juice to the tea mixture. Serve in chilled glasses over ice. Makes about 2 quarts.
