Blueberry Mint Iced Tea :)
Makes about 10 cups
4 cups blueberries (about 2 dry pints)
Juice from 1 lemon
1 cup roughly torn fresh mint
1 cup sugar, plus more to taste
4 bags green tea
In a medium pot, combine the blueberries with 1 cup water. Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Cook the blueberries for 5 minutes, using a large spoon to mash up the berries. Stir in the lemon juice, mint, and sugar. Allow the mixture to simmer for another 1 to 2 minutes so the mint flavor infuses. Remove from the heat and strain the blueberry mixture through a fine-mesh strainer, discarding the solids. Set the blueberry syrup aside.
In another small pot, bring 6 cups of water to a boil, then turn off the heat. Steep the green tea bags in the water for 5 to 10 minutes, then discard the tea bags.
Stir the blueberry syrup and the green tea together in a pitcher. Adjust the sweetness with more sugar if you’d like. Chill for at least 2 hours.
Serve in individual glasses with plenty of ice. Garnish with mint sprigs.
