Raspberry Sweet Tea

This will make 2 Quarts. Just double everything for a gallon. I made this in my ice tea maker. I put 4 tea bags (I like it a little stronger) and my 2 quarts of water in to brew. I added the sugar to the pitcher so it would dissolve. After it was done brewing, I added the lemon juice and the raspberry syrup. I did not have a 1/3 cup measuring cup so I found out that by using 5 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon, I could get an exact 1/3 cup! I may or may not have added a little more raspberry syrup... you'll never know for sure. Very yummy! My iced tea maker has a line where it suggests adding ice after the tea is brewed. So, I did that and put it in the fridge!
