I hope that you all enjoy this as much as I did!
Iced Blueberry Green Tea
- Enough tea bags to make 1 gallon of tea (depends on the brand of tea - mine took 16 bags)
- 4 Cups boiling water
- 10 Cups Cold Water
- Juice from 1 Lemon
- 1 Pint Blueberries
- 2 Cups Sugar
- 2 Cups Water
Boil 4 Cups of water. Remove from heat and add tea bags - let steep for 10-15 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea.
While tea is brewing, make syrup. Add all syrup ingredients to a medium sized pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Cook until blueberries burst open and sugar has melted. Be sure not to turn the heat up too high so the sugar doesn't burn to the bottom of the pan. Strain the syrup over a large bowl to remove blueberry skins.
Stir in the juice of 1 lemon.
Remove tea bags from the water and pour tea into a 1-gallon pitcher. Add blueberry syrup to the pitcher and stir until well combined. Add the 10 cups of cold water and stir. Place pitcher in the fridge for a few hours to completely cool the tea. Serve with a fresh lemon wedge.
