Blueberry Lemon Iced Tea

Blueberry Iced Tea

I often make this for guests who then request it every time they come over, which is a very flattering pain in the ass. So before you serve this to other people make sure you’re ok with making it. I start out with a small amount of¬†sugar and then add to taste because I don’t want to get the shuga.
Blueberry Lemon Iced Tea – From http://www.sharongreen.me – frozen blueberries, lemon juice (fresh or concentrate), water, tea bags, sugar (Add more or less to taste), Place frozen blueberries and 1/2 cup lemon juice in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir occasionally for 5 minutes.; Remove from heat and pour through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl using the back of a spoon to squeeze out the juice. Discard solid blueberry paste or reserve it and use it in muffins, pancakes or to make suet for the birds. They love it!; Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in the same saucepan. Remove from heat and add 6 teabags, then let steep for 5 minutes.; Remove tea bags and stir in 1/2 cup sugar and blueberry juice mixture. Pour into a pitcher, cover and chill.
