Quite often I take samples of our Turkish Apple tea to the markets I do so that people get a chance to try it. I take it cold and people really find it very refreshing. The other day I was looking for recipes for ice tea that I could try and came across one for blueberry iced tea I gave it a few tweaks and was really happy how it ended up and the kids liked it also. So if you would like to give it a go here’s what you will need:
- The small packet of frozen blueberries from the supermarket I think it’s about 250gms.
- The juice from 2 lemons.
- 4 iTea English Breakfast Pyramid Bags
- about 1/2 cup of sugar…that was to my taste.
- 4 cups of water.
Put the blueberries and lemon juice into a small saucepan and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 mins.
Remove from heat and pour through a fine sieve and squeeze out as much as possible with the back of a spoon. Discard the solids.
Rinse the saucepan and bring the 4 cups of water to the boil, take off the heat and put the pyramid bags in and let infuse for 5 mins.
Remove the pyramid bags; add the sugar and blueberry mixture. Pour into a jug and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve over ice.
