Blackberry Green Tea Recipe

I love green tea.  In fact, I have a hot cup of green tea every morning and when the weather is cool, every night.  So, I guess it’s only natural that as a foodie I even play with flavor as it pertains to green tea.  I’m officially a food geek!  I actually think about what would go with various flavors when I’m shopping or eating or drinking, I think about what I’d do differently or add to change things; see….official food geek.  And, as I sipped my green tea one day, I thought blackberries.   And, so I give you this Blackberry Green Tea recipe…your welcome (joking, ok…not joking because it is good).

This delicious drink is easy and bursting with flavor.  It’s the perfect sip to steal a quiet moment for yourself, to share a good conversation with a friend or to serve while entertaining.  It’s YUMMY…

As I was thinking about what makes this blend so good, I realized it’s not one specific ingredient; it’s all of the ingredients brought together that makes this drink worth trying.  Of course, muddled blackberries are the perfect finishing touch …okay, they’re the bomb…so maybe they are the star.  Let me know what you think.

Enjoy!

Blackberry Green Tea Recipe

Ingredients

  • Fresh blackberries
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3 green tea bags (of choice)
  • Raspberry extract

Instructions

Wash the blackberries and set them aside.

Bring the three cups of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat and add in the honey and stir until the honey is fully dissolved into the water. Turn off the heat, add three green tea bags and let the tea bags rest in the water until you've reached your desired steep.

Place some fresh blackberries into the bottom of your glass or mug. Muddle the blackberries, which means your gently press them with a muddling tool or the end of wooden spoon works (or something similar). You are just gently breaking up the fruit, you want there to be chunky pieces left, and releasing the natural juices to help flavor the tea.

Add in just a few drops of raspberry extract into the berries.

Pour the honey green tea over the muddled blackberries and enjoy!

More thoughts on this recipe;

Muddling:  There is a muddling tool you can use, but you can also simply turn over a spatula or large plastic spoon and use the handle to muddle your fruit in a glass.  It’s simply a bit of a mash so that the fruit releases it’s juice and leaves beautiful chunks of fruity flavor!

The honey:  I use three parts water and 1 part honey when I make my blackberry green tea recipe, which is a ‘sweet tea’ kind of drink.  Make it, see what you think.  I wouldn’t add more, but you can always reduce if you don’t like your drinks very sweet.

The Raspberry Extract:  You only need a few drops, and I truly mean drops, in each glass.  I have an eye dropper that’s been bought and used for nothing else but cooking in my kitchen.  It’s used specifically for my extracts.

Enjoy flavorful drinks?  Consider checking out my Frozen Lemonade.  It is made with a blackberry and raspberry puree and when layered properly, makes a refreshing red, white and blue drink that’s total YUM FUN…
