Blueberry-Lemon Iced Tea Recipe

I absolutely adore iced tea, and my favorite iced tea recipe incorporates blueberries. Blueberries are not a traditional fruit to include in iced tea. In fact, I've personally never heard of anybody who has incorporated blueberries in their tea. I actually discovered this recipe in an attempt to get rid of some extra blueberries that had been sitting in the fridge to long; I figured they would make the tea look pretty. But I was pleasantly surprised that when blueberries soak in warm tea they add a refreshing fruity-sweetness to the drink.

You'll Need (for a large pitcher of tea):
4 Personal Size Tea Bags
1-2 handfuls of Blueberries
1 lemon
3 cups of sugar or 2 cups of alternative sugar

Directions for the Blueberry-Lemon Iced Tea Recipe:

Heat the water till boiling. Place the tea packets to soak in the boiling water.

Remove the tea packets once the water has turned dark brown.

Add 3 cups of sugar to the tea, or sweeten it to taste.

Cut 1 lemon in half and squeeze the lemon juice out of both halves into the tea. Then throw the squeezed lemons into the tea and allow them to soak.

Add the blueberries and allow them to soak in the hot tea as well.

Once the tea is warm or cool, it is ready to drink.
