Love. Want. My favourite is iced mint tea. So refreshing!
This sounds just delicious. I love the combination of lemonade and iced tea. The addition of blueberries is even better!
This is so refreshing, love your pretty jar 🙂
This looks so good. I love the idea of blueberries in lemonade. It is so hot here in Mass; I definitely will make a batch this week:) Thanks!
What an iviting picture – and the tea sounds fabulous. I have a lot of raspberries about to ripen and plan on trying this with them.
there is a heat wave here in Paris so your lemonade would be very welcome !! Pierre
What a lovely, delicious summer drink. The combination of blueberries and lemon sounds so refreshing.
Nice photo and refreshing summer drink. I've been doing cucumbers and mint in the blender for something equally hydrating.
Oh so refreshing and perfect for Minnesota's bumper crop of blueberries.
Looks so delish and refreshing!

That does sound deliciously refreshing! I love Arnold Palmers and I'm sure I would love this too. Saving a copy of the recipe – thanks!
What a refreshing looking drink! Perfect for this crazy hot summer weather!
That sounds so yummy and summery! Blueberries are one of my favorite things about summer.
What a refreshing beverage! So what are \”family-size\” tea bags? I'm in the dark.
Oh, great combo! Think I could add some liquor? pshaw..of course I could 😉 Sounds great, Velva!
What a lovely drink! So summery and refreshing!
I bet no one can look at that without panting for it. Perfect in this weather.

Looks terrific! I think blueberry and lemon goes so well together. You could even spike this with a little blueberry vodka!
Oh how pretty. If I had seen this sooner, I would have picked more berries off our bushes!
What a great and refreshing drink for a summer's afternoon. I will make this very soon. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary
Looks absolutely gorgeous, especially with all those blueberry bits floating around.

Looks so cool and refreshing. How do you think it would be with some Pimm's? I'm all about Pimm's and lemonade right now.
Refreshing summer drink.Mimi
So refreshing, awesome colour too ♥
Okay, I've just learned this year from Katherine (Smoky Mountain Cafe) that a mixed lemonade and tea is an \”Arnold Palmer\”. If you add blueberry to the mix, what do you call that….an \”Arnold Palmer holding his breath until he turns blue\”? Looks refreshing, V!
Great combination of flavours! Looking for something special to make this week for my grndchildren; thank you.rita
My air conditioning died yesterday and the service rep can't come until tomorrow morning. Sure wish I had a glass of this incredible looking tea…oh, I know, I'll make some!Thanks,Susan

Great looking summer drink. (I'd probably be tempted to sneak out back behind the woodshed and add a shot of vodka to it, strictly for medicinal purposes of course.

I need to have a drink now. Mouth watering…
This sounds like a lovely and refreshing drink!

This sounds wonderful.I am going to give it a try although I will have to use my root teas instead of the tea most people would use for this.Can't wait to try it.
Nice and cooling drink on a hot day, I love anything that have tea in it! Yum!
What a beautiful and refreshing drink. I just love that intense colour 🙂
That's gorgeous, Velva! Love your combo of blueberries, tea and lemonade. Those blueberries gave it such a lovely color.
this makes me think of a 'line' from an old southern movie with Paul Newman- sultry he looks at her and says, \”Baby would I like a tall cool drink from your glass\”…my movie that is, lol
Looks and sounds refreshing!
I'm typically not a huge tea drinker, but this looks so refreshing! Helps you have a pretty serving pitcher too!
Gorgeous- and so is that pitcher! Love the shape.
This sounds so refreshing! And the picture made me salivate! Yummy!
What a great drink! I wouldn't have thought of adding blueberries to a tea. I love that pitcher too!
Wonderful combination! Love it!
