1  cup hot water

6 Bigelow® Lemon Lift Tea Bags*
1 cup blueberries
1 cup strawberries (quartered)
½ cup raspberries
½ cup blackberries
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Serves 8

*NOTE:  You may substitute Bigelow I Love Lemon Herb Tea if you want a caffeine-free sauce.


This dessert sauce is made from fresh berries cooked in Bigelow® Lemon Lift tea and is perfect over ice cream, angel food cake, pound cake, or with a simple dollop of whipped cream.  

Combine hot water and tea bags and allow to steep for 5-7 minutes.  Gently squeeze teabags and discard.

Place tea in a medium saucepan with sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice.  Bring to a boil and simmer for approximately 5-7 minutes until reduced by half.  Add the blueberries and strawberries, and cook until blueberries begin to "pop".  Add the raspberries and blackberries and continue to cook an additional two-three minutes.  Cool for approximately 10 minutes and serve.

Alternatively, store in an airtight container and refrigerate up to 3 days.  Bring to room temperature before serving..

*To make a thicker sauce, simply increase the amount of berries from three cups to five.
