Blueberry Mint Iced Tea

I bought a container of 100 black tea bags for 80 cents recently and I have been enjoying brewing up flavored iced teas.

You can feel free to use any berry you have on hand.  I'm sure they will all taste delicious.

Blueberry Mint Iced tea

2 quarts of water, plus 1 cup
10 tea bags
3/4 cup of sugar
1 cup blueberries
a few mint leaves
1 tbsp lemon juice

1. In a medium saucepan boil 2 quarts water and steep the tea bags, allow to cool.
2. In a small saucepan boil 1 cup water, sugar, blueberries, mint leaves, and lemon juice.  Boil until sugar is dissolved and blueberries can be smashed with the back of a spoon.  Mash the blueberries, then strain out the solids using a fine mesh sieve.  Allow to cool.
3. Place tea and blueberry syrup in a pitcher and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Yep.  This is exactly what you need when it is 95 degrees out this summer.
