A Most Excellent Raspberry Iced Tea

I heard a lot about Raspberry Iced Tea during ZWT6. When the dust settled, I went in search. While they all look great, I only have loose tea and Earl Grey bagged to take to work. So I started experimenting (uh oh). I used green tea because I thought that black tea would overpower the delicate raspberries. If anyone makes this with black tea, please leave a comment as to which one & how it turned out! Despite the addition of sugar, this is not a sweet tea. I listed OTHER ADDITIONS because I thought of many other flavors I could add - not necessarily all at once - but haven't gotten around to actually doing it. 'Cooking time' is cooling/steeping time. I hope you enjoy!
