Instant Pot Blackberry Iced Tea


Instant Pot Blackberry Iced Tea

Tip: To reduce bitterness, add a pinch of baking soda prior to brewing and remove tea bags as soon as the pressure has been fully released. 

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes active (+ time to come to pressure)
Natural Release: 10 minutes

Serves: 4-6



8 c. water
6 organic black tea bags, paper tags removed
1½ c. fresh blackberries, divided
2 T. fresh basil, chopped
½ c. honey, preferably local
½ c. water
2 T. fresh lemon juice

Optional garnish:

Fresh blackberries

Fresh basil sprigs



  1. Add water, tea bags, and a half cup blackberries to Instant Pot® and stir to combine. Add lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 5 minutes.

  2. While the tea is brewing, add remaining blackberries, basil, honey, and water to saucepan set over medium heat. Cook, gently pressing on the blackberries to release their juices while continually stirring the mixture to combine, for 4-5 minutes. Once honey is completely melted and the mixture starts to thicken, remove from heat and set aside. 

  3. When cook time on Instant Pot® is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then do a quick release to release any remaining pressure.


  1. Carefully strain hot tea mixture with a fine mesh strainer. Pour the reserved liquid into a large, heat-resistant pitcher and sweeten with the blackberry honey simple syrup, to taste. Add fresh lemon juice and stir to combine. 

  2. Serve immediately over ice with fresh blackberries and a sprig of fresh basil for garnish. Enjoy!
