  • 1 cup plus 3 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • About 15  mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 cups blackberries
  • 2 iced tea bags


1.  Cut the blackberries into small pieces.  You will end up with bits of blackberry with a fair amount of juice.

2.  Add 1 cup water, sugar, chopped mint leaves and the crushed blackberries to a saucepan and heat to boiling.  Turn the heat down and simmer until all the sugar is dissolved, stirring occasionally.  Remove from the heat and let stand for one hour.

3.  Boil 3 cups of water in a saucepan.  Add two tea bags and remove from the heat.  Let steep for 3 minutes.

4.  Fill a pitcher with ice.   Add the tea and the syrup, then fill the rest of the pitcher with water.   Serve in a glass filled with ice and a blackberry garnish.
