Iced Mint-Raspberry Tea with Chia Seeds

I don’t drink tea all that often, except my favorite ginger-turmeric tea, but a friend shared with me a delicious-sounding recipe yesterday and I was determined to try it. After all, it looked amazing and seemed like it would be pretty simple to make, and it was. This iced min-raspberry tea is a burst of summer flavor and includes a touch of my favorite super-food chia seeds. Wanna know why chia seeds are so wonderful? They contain loads of omega-3s, protein, antioxidants, and fiber. So 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds can add so much nutritional value to this easy and inexpensive iced tea.
