Lemon Verbena Blueberry Iced Tea

We have lemon verbana growing in our backyard. It smells terrific and makes a great lemony tea.

32 ounces lemon verbena tea (or lemon balm)
1/2 cup fresh blueberry juice
white stevia powder to taste
ice

You can make lemon verbena tea by pouring 32 ounces of boiling water over about a 1/2 cup of fresh or dried lemon verbana leaves and let steep for 10 minutes. You can also make sun tea by letting the tea sit in the sun for at least 4 hours in a covered mason jar. When the tea has cooled down you can pour it into a pitcher of ice and them pour in the blueberry juice. You can make fresh blueberry juice if you have a juicer or use store bought pure blueberry juice. Stir in the white stevia powder until you reach your desired sweetness level and serve promptly. Makes about 4 servings.
