Blueberry Iced Tea
(See "Related Articles" below for more iced tea varieties.)
In fact, more scientific studies are indicating compelling health-related findings associated with consuming blueberries, in general.
First, this flavored blend is typically brewed from black or green tea, which contain antioxidant properties that promote good health. In addition, special blends of quality loose leaf white blueberry tea are available that offer a delicate, delicious tasting iced or hot beverage with high levels of antioxidants.
Second, by adding blueberries to the beverage, drinkers benefit from even more disease fighting attributes. There is growing evidence that blueberries are powerful disease fighters.
According to researchers at the USDA Human Nutrition Center, blueberries rank #1 in antioxidant activity when compared to 40 other fresh fruits and vegetables.
The blend can be easily made by adding dried blueberry leaves and/or dried or fresh berries to your tea and boiling water.
Then, simply steep, strain and serve hot or over ice. You may want to add some sugar, honey or flavored syrup to suit your palette.
You can also purchase ready-made blueberry tea bags; though, they may not offer as many antioxidant properties as making your own brew.
A variety of other flavors can be added to your blueberry tea to create a special taste treat. Consider adding some cream for a richer-bodied drink. Or, create your own fruit tea recipe by adding pomegranate, cherry or blackberry to your brew.
