Blueberry Mint Tea

Blueberries are in season and I couldn’t be happier. This beautiful blueberry mint tea only uses a few natural, pure ingredients making it a truly delightful afternoon treat. (It would be perfect to have with this sprouted grain blueberry banana bread – oh yum).

I love to sit on my front porch, hearing the birds chirping while I write blog posts and sip this blueberry mint infused drink.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe I have a 2 lb bag of frozen blueberries and now I know what to do with them! My mother harvests them and always gives us a lot! This time I didn’t have time to bake (like I always do)!
