2 cups fresh Florida blackberries, plus more for garnish
3 tablespoons natural Florida sugar
5 bags tea (your favorite)
6 cups water plus another 3 cups for later
1 lemon, sliced
Fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish
Mash the Florida blackberries and sugar in a large mixing bowl with a fork. Bring the 6 cups of water to a slight boil, then add the tea bags. Cover the water with a lid and let steep for 10 minutes. Carefully remove the tea bags from the water and discard them. Add the tea to the blackberry and sugar mixture while stirring. Set aside at room temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes. Strain the mixture through a colander or strainer. Add the blackberry tea and the other 3 cups of water to a pitcher or carafe and stir to combine. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator overnight. Serve tea in a tall glass filled with ice. Garnish with fresh blackberries, sliced lemon and a sprig of rosemary.
