  • Iced Herbal Blueberry Tea

    This has become my favorite IC summer drink. It is SO refreshing.

    Get a 32 oz mason jar, drop in 3 Celestial Seasonings "True Blueberry" herbal tea packets, heat water in a tea kettle, fill the mason jar
    almost to the top with hot water, seep herbal tea bags for about 5 minutes, then remove them and throw away. When cooled, store jar of Blueberry tea in refrigerator. To serve, pour over glass of ice cubes and add sugar to taste.

    To me, it looks and tastes almost like Kool-Aid, which I haven't had in over a year.

    I let my husband taste it and he couldn't believe it was iced herbal tea. It is very good!

      I am going to try this. I have been wanting something cold that is different from my usual cold drinks.

      Tried:
      Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
      Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
      CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
      Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
      Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
      Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

      Take:
      Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
      Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
      Naproxen:for pain as needed
      Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
      Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
      Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
      Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.

            oh my goodness I tried this and it is true it is like Koolaid. It is super yummy. I just added my tea bags to cold water and set in the fridge overnight(they told me at the store that you do not need to brew in hot water) . I then added the sugar. I bought a variety pack of fruit flavors I am going to try other ones but the blueberry is definitely a keeper. It not as cheap as koolaid but that is ok.

              Good idea! I'll have to try seeping the bags in cold water next time. It's not exactly like Kool-Aid, but close enough. Glad you liked it!!!

                I'm going in town today and plan to pickup some --- I have had to increase my fluid intake and it's hard. I'm hoping the tea will help.

                  This tea gave me a killer flare. Please be careful. Rose hips and hibiscus are acidic. And yes I did follow the 3 bag to 32 oz ratio.
