It’s still rather hot here in New Jersey and I find the cooling effect of iced tea to be a beacon of respite on a humid, sunny day. Cold-brewed Smashed Raspberry Honey Iced Tea is light and refreshing – pair the smashed raspberries and honey with your favorite tea, or in this case, Traditional Medicinals Mother’s Milk Shatavari Cardamom.

My daughter M was playing while I was setting up for this shoot and she became interested in what I was doing, then intensely focused, so I just went with her enthusiasm. I think I have a budding food stylist here! She was really intent on placing the silverware, cookery and stirring, all the while being careful and specific – it was amusing and touching for me to watch her. I was so happy to have her be genuinely involved and interested – as much as a toddler can be!
Fresh raspberries, honey and tea equals a divine combination:
Why Cold-Brewed Tea? The flavor of the tea is more subtle and delicate than hot brewed tea in my experience. I try to avoid turning on the oven when it’s hot out and this is something that I can prepare the night before and it is so easy to do!
Below are some photos of cardamom pods that I got when I made rum babas. They have an almost floral, subtle and warm nuanced scent.
Also, Traditional Medicinals Pregnancy Tea was my special beverage of choice while I was pregnant since I couldn’t have coffee during the pregnancy. I highly recommend their Pregnancy Tea to expectant mothers.
