Refreshing and mellow iced tea, perfect for any occasion.




  • 1L (4 1/3 cups) water
  • 5 mint-flavored tea bags
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) pure blueberry juice
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) water
  • 210g (1 cup) granulated sugar

For serving

  • 2 limes, sliced
  • a big handful of fresh mint
  • ice cubes


  1. Pour water into a large pitcher, add tea bags, cover with lid and refrigerate overnight or for 12 hours or more, for maximum flavor. Discard tea bags.
  2. Make blueberry syrup:
    Combine blueberry juice, water and sugar in a small saucepan. Stir to dissolve and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Let syrup simmer for 5 minutes and stir it occasionally so it doesn’t stick. Remove syrup from heat and transfer it to a heatproof jar. Let cool completely, then store covered in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  3. When you’re ready to make the iced tea, fill up 1/3 of a large pitcher with ice. Pour over 1/2 of the syrup (or all of it for a really sweet tea), then the mint tea. Add sliced limes and mint. Stir with a spoon and serve.


I find pure blueberry juice in the “healthy” section of the grocery store, next to all the organic and/or vegan food. You can also get it on Amazon (example 1, example 2).

You can easily use loose leaf tea instead of tea bags. Use enough to make 5 cups of tea.
