Blueberries are used in many products as an ingredient – high in nutrition to the point that blueberries are growing in the field of ‘nutraceuticals’, they taste great and can improve your health. The peak harvest is in July (known as the blueberry month) so it is very much a summertime fruit. The blueberry is a native American species with North America the world’s leading producer accounting for 90% of production. It is a plump juicy fruit. The blueberry started wild and over time was domesticated in the early 1900’s. Through natural selection the blueberry was cultivated producing desirable texture, color, flavor and nutrition to the point that the blueberry has shown to improve eyesight and slow down aging. Blueberries are well liked in Europe as a beverage and looked upon as being healthy because of it antioxidant properties.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straightup’

Iced tea brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
