Method

  1. Step 1

    Place the sugar, tea bags and ½ cup (125ml) water in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the sugar dissolves. Add the lemon juice, 2 cups (300g) of the blackberries and 1 cup (150g) raspberries. Increase heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 mins or until the berries release their juice and the mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Carefully discard tea bags. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Step 2

    Transfer the berry mixture to a food processor and process until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 3 hours or until chilled.
  3. Step 3

    Divide half the berry syrup evenly among serving glasses. Add one-third of the remaining blackberries and raspberries and 1 scoop of ice-cream. Continue layering with the syrup, berries and ice-cream, finishing with the berries. Top with mineral water and serve immediately.
