It's June 21 and summer is officially here! The warm temperatures are creeping across the US , and everyone is turning to ice cold beverages to beat the heat. The BUNN Home Products Division is no different. We've been trading in our regular coffee and tea for iced versions. Janice, the Credit Administrator for the Home Products Division, is an avid tea drinker, and brought in fresh raspberries to share with the department for a tasty, summer snack. This got us thinking; could we create an iced tea with these ripe, in-season berries?
We started experimenting with the My Caf MCU at the Home Products Division brew bar. (Yes. We have a brew bar in our department. )

We grabbed a few black tea bags, a cup of ice, a handful of raspberries and went to work. Here's how we started our experiment:
First, it is important to note that when preparing any iced tea it is recommended to brew double strength tea. Otherwise, the ice will dilute the tea with loss of flavor and color.
After we poured the second batch of tea over ice, we topped it off with fresh raspberries. We placed whole and sliced berries in our tea.
The Result: Delicious Tea.
Janice described the tea as, "fruity and refreshing."
