This recipe combines two of my favorite healing foods–lemon balm and wild blueberries.

Both of these foods offer a powerhouse of healing benefits that are helpful for everyone. They also taste delicious when paired together. Make plenty of this recipe and store it in the fridge.

Lemon Balm Wild Blueberry Iced Tea

Directions:

Place the wild blueberries, maple syrup and lemon juice in a medium-sized saucepan. Cook over low heat until the wild blueberries are mushy, about 5 minutes.

Add the water and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat off, add the tea bags and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Pour everything through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher or bowl, using the back of a spoon to squeeze out juice from the blueberries and tea bags. Chill the tea for about an hour in the fridge, then serve over ice with fresh lemon balm for garnish.
