HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY ICED TEA?
BLUEBERRY ICED TEA- A REFRESHING ICED TEA WITH FRESH BLUEBERRIES.
What is Iced Tea?
Iced tea is basically a cold drink made with tea leaves and some added flavors. It is usually a dairy-free drink. Iced tea with dairy will become something of a latte. I m a complete tea addict. I love my morning chai and green tea. Come summer, the hot chai or green tea becomes a little too much. That is exactly why we need to brew some blueberry tea.
What is blueberry iced tea?
This iced tea is my latest favorite way to enjoy tea. The tangy-sweet berries combined with tea is a beautiful amalgam of flavors. Also, any drink with fruits is considered healthy, right?
When we moved to Singapore newly, some things took me by surprise, especially their choice of drinks. The nation loves to drink beer, tea, and Bandung in that order. And I have never seen as many varieties of packaged teas anywhere else. There is literally a tea with every vegetable or fruit you can imagine. And if you don’t find it packaged, you’ll find it in the form of teabags.
This recipe is inspired by all this. And the fact that I get blueberries almost through the year makes it such a win. You can choose your sweetener for this. I personally like using Thai black sugar for all my iced teas. The flavor is so different and yet so soothing. White sugar will work too.
Or you can go completely sugar-free with this recipe too. If you want, you can also use maple or agave syrup.
