B and Mason are the Iced Tea Drinkers in this family. I think it has to do with them being born south of the Mason Dixon Line. If you’re south of the Mason Dixon line you have to like tea and if you don’t? Well, you must not really be southern!

Maybe it’s because I’m a blogger but we’re pretty big on trying new products, we always like to compare brands and products so of course B was excited to try Pure Leaf Tea.

Pure Leaf Teas

The Flavors are Unsweetened, Sweet Tea, Lemon Tea and new Not Too Sweet Peach Tea and Not Too Sweet Honey Green Tea. They all got the seal of approval from B and Mason who drank the teas so quickly I’m surprised I even got to make this specialty tea!

Along with the teas we got a couple of great recipes to try out both non-alcoholic and alcoholic. Mason loves to help me in the kitchen but he’s also a boy so he loves to crush things so I when I saw that you got to crush blueberries in the Peach Blueberry Basil Iced Tea I knew making his own tea drink would be a hit. We did switch it up a little since we were out of fresh blueberries we used Black Raspberries. So our drink became Peach Black Raspberry Basil Iced Tea. Our  Black Raspberries were fresh from the Farmer’s market, making them extra juicy and delicious!

At first I was nervous about switching out the fruit but according to Ted Allen from Chopped who paired up with Pure Leaf to offer Summer Entertaining Hints

The delicate, refreshing flavor of tea pairs beautifully with almost any food. Think of its abilities to clean your palate of rich, sweet flavors, and to compliment more delicate ones.Offer a range of teas—sweet, unsweetened, not-too-sweet, peach—to give your guests choices, then serve with interesting garnishes (cherries, kiwi, blood orange, Meyer lemon,and a selection of herbs).

This would make a great drink for your 4th of July Celebration!

It’s super simple to make and the kids will love helping you do it! Place 1/4 cup black raspberries and 3-5 Basil leaves in a pint glass. We went on the lower end and put 3 basil leaves in.
