1. Bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add tea and blackberries, mashing blackberries. Turn off heat, cover and let steep 7 minutes. Drain through a strainer. Add sweetener, stirring to dissolve.
2. Pour into a pitcher. Add remaining 6 cups water and lime juice; stir. Refrigerate until cold. Pour over ice cubes and garnish with fresh blackberries and lime wedges, if desired.
