How to Make Blueberry Iced Green Tea 

This blueberry iced green tea is a great immunity booster drink to make.  It’s so delicious and it’s super quick and easy to make!  The freshly steeped green tea is blended with blueberries and honey, then strained through a fine mesh (removing the blueberry skins).  

  1. Steep tea:  Steep green tea using either loose leaves or tea bags.
  2. Add tea, blueberries and honey to blender:  Blend the blueberries, steeped tea and honey in a blender.
  3. Strain:  Strain the blueberry green tea through a sieve into a pitcher discarding whats left of the blueberry skins.
  4. Serve:  Serve blueberry tea over ice and garnish with mint leaves.

How to Steep Tea

  • You’ll use about 1 teaspoon loose tea leaves per 1 cup water or 1 tea bag per 1 cup water.
  • Fill tea kettle or pot with cold water and heat to a simmer just before boiling then remove from heat.
  • Pour hot water over tea leaves (rather than adding tea leaves to a cup with hot water) and steep.  
  • If using an infuser, be sure the tea infuser is fully submerged beneath water while steeping.
  • Remove tea bag or infuser and enjoy tea.

You can either 

  • Put loose tea leaves right in the cup or tea pot; or
  • Add the tea leaves to a ball style infuser to dunk in your cup or pot; or
  • Place your tea leaves in a metal strainer and rest it on the lip of your tea cup while pouring the hot water over the tea leaves; or  
  • Add tea bag to tea cup and pour hot water over tea bag and steep (don’t squeeze tea bag while steeping because it will cause a bitter taste). 

How Long Do You Steep Green Tea?

How long to steep green tea depends really on how strong you like your green tea. 

  • Loose leaf tea:  steep for 2 – 4 minutes
  • Tea bag: steep for 1 – 3 minutes
  • Don’t steep for too long or the tea can become bitter.
