I saw an "instant" variety when I was at the store, but I was hoping to make something with a little greater depth of flavor by brewing it with regular tea bags (like sun tea) and then adding ( ? )

How about making a simple syrup (just boiling sugar with water) and then adding a strained raspberry puree? (you could even use frozen berries).
Then, you could pour a bit into your pre-brewed sun tea. And, for a good kick, add some chamboard!

Oh yeah - - I didn't even think of getting frozen berries. I was kinda thinking I'd need to find nectar or something. Hmmm

I guess the amounts of ingredients would be a bit of a "to taste" experiment, but I was wondering where that berry flavor would come from.

Thanks J. (never had chambord, but it does seem like it would be an interesting addition)

Make sure you use at least a 2:1 ratio with sugar and water.
How about 2-3 c. sugar, 1 c. water, boiled to the ratio of 1 full package of pulverized raspberries, strained through cheesecloth (tripled) or a coffee filter if you don't have the cheesecloth.

If you want to do something quicker, you could also try using a raspberry flavored syrup, like Torani brand. You can buy them in a lot of grocery stores these days in the coffee aisle or in coffee shops.

Never thought of that, and I have many flavors here in my cupboards (*doh!*)
Great idea!
