This is "the best" blueberry-lemonade iced tea I've ever had. Frozen (unsweetened) blueberries, Ocean Spray's Blueberry Juice Cocktail, sugar-free lemonade flavored drink mix and water, are the ingredients needed to make this tea. Note: prep time includes steeping the tea.

  10. At this point you can immediately serve the tea in a glass filled with ice, or you can chill the tea in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
