>> 1/2 cup Labrador tea leaves
>> 6 cups water
>> 1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or thawed)
>> 2 cups water
>> 1 tbsp lemon juice
>> Maple syrup or sweetener of choice to taste
In a medium-size saucepan, boil 6 cups water; turn stove off and let sit 5 minutes. Then add the Labrador leaves and allow to steep 10 to 15 minutes.
In another medium-size saucepan, bring the 2 cups of water to a boil, add blueberries, then reduce heat and simmer. Be sure to stir often, until blueberries break down, about 5 to 10 minutes.
Strain both saucepans into a glass pitcher. Set the blueberries aside. Add the lemon juice, and maple syrup (or sweetener of choice) to the blueberry tea mixture. Stir well and then cool to room temperature.
Once at room temperature, refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours. Serve with ice cubes if desired.
