• Blueberry Iced Green Tea! Posted on June 24, 2013


    Blueberry Iced Green Tea! Green tea is often my warm drink of choice but these days I have been thinking about an iced green tea and why not add blueberries to the mix? Although I usually prefer my iced tea to be unsweetened the thought of a blueberry iced green tea was all that I needed to try it out. This iced tea is super easy to make; you simply need to boil some water, steep the green tea in it, mix in some more water and the blueberry syrup until it has the blueberry flavor and level of sweetness that you are looking for. After that you need to have some patience to wait while it chills out in the fridge but then you can throw some ice into it and enjoy! A small hit of lemon also works wonderfully to brighten things up. Tea Ingredients: 8 cups water 4 green tea bags 1 cup blueberry syrup or to taste (see recipe below) ice Blueberry syrup: Ingredients: 1 cup blueberries 1 cup water 1 cup sugar 1/2 lemon, juice Directions: Place the blueberries, sugar and water in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain the solids from the juice with a fine sieve and set the solids aside. Mix in the lemon juice, transfer to a jar and store in the fridge. Tea Directions: Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and remove from heat. Mix in 1/2 cup of room temperature water, add the tea bags and steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags and add the remaining water. Mix in the blueberry syrup until it reaches the desired sweetness. Chill in the fridge, add ice and enjoy. recipe thanks to: http://www.closetcooking.com/2011/08/blueberry-iced-green-tea.html
