As our seasons change from rain and clouds to sun and shine, this is a recipe you definitely need to try! Try this delicious Raspberry Sweet Tea recipe with no-sugar added once it’s cooled down – and it’s even better two or three days later!
- 1 gallon of water
- 10 tea bags (black or green, caffeinated or decaffeinated)
- 4 cups of washed fresh or frozen raspberries
- 3 teaspoons of NuStevia White Stevia Powder
1.) Put your washed raspberries in a pot with at least a quart of water. Don’t overfill your pan.
2.) Combine the rest of the water and your stevia in a separate bigger pot. As noted by the author from her stevia package, 2.5 teaspoons is equal to 0.5 cups of granulated sugar and if you don’t like your tea too sweet 3 teaspoons is the perfect amount.
3.) Bring your raspberry-water mixture to a soft boil for about 4 minutes, then strain the raspberries and add the raspberry ‘juice’ to the larger pot of water and stevia.
4.) Bring the larger pot to a boil. Tea bags shouldn’t be added yet. Once the larger pot has been brought to a boil, remove it from the heat and add the tea bags.
5.) Cut the tags off of the tea bags before adding it to the pot and let the tea bags sit for 10 minutes.
6.) After allowing 10 minutes for the mixture and tea bags to sit, remove the tea bags and chill the tea in the fridge.

Welcome to Sufficient Acres!
We live on a few acres in south-central Washington in the windy Columbia Gorge. We firmly believe that we all should be good stewards of the things that God has blessed us with. Our goal for this blog is to encourage, share advice and tips about cooking from scratch, raising chickens and ducks (for eggs and meat), gardening, homeschooling and whatever else we are doing at the moment. A more sustainable, frugal and intentional lifestyle is what we are all about and if you’re striving for the same thing, you are not alone! This blog is also somewhat of a journal for us so when we’re feeling frustrated and discouraged we can look back and see that we really are making progress!
