Recipe // Raspberry Citrus Iced Tea

I have been drinking a lot of iced tea this last month. This morning I decided I'm going to go off of coffee until baby comes, so I think I'll be drinking that much more iced tea in the weeks to come! I was recommended to drink lots of raspberry leaf tea (by my amazing doula - Sarah). The fun pregnancy thing is that half of the time hot tea makes me nauseous...so usually I pour it over ice and squeeze a bit of lemon or something citrusy to sweeten it up.

This recipe is for a sweet tea, it's delicious. I've made it a few times and Dan and I love it, it's light and sweet.

You'll Need:
- 2 bags of Raspberry Leaf Tea
- 1 Lime
- 3 oz of Grapefruit Simple Syrup (recipe here).
- Strawberries

First thing, steep about 1 litre of tea with 2 tea bags, I usually pour it, let it sit on the counter for an hour and then stick it in the fridge.

Squeeze the juice from 1 lime and add it to the chilled tea.

Add  3 oz of the grapefruit simple syrup, mix well! Serve over ice with fresh lime and sliced strawberries. 

Serve with ice and some fresh fruit if you're feeling fancy! enjoy <3

Julia was one of the first people we talked to about the shop and really encouraged us to move forward and had our first samples of the suit done SO fast. We were able to base a lot of design inspiration for the rest of our shop through this bathing suit!
