Blueberry Simple Syrup (For Iced Tea)
4 cups fresh blueberries or 4 cups dry-packed frozen blueberries, rinsed and drained
2 cups water
Place your blueberries in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Set sieve or colander lined with cheesecloth (or thick papertowel) over a bowl and pour in the blueberry mixture.
Gently press out the juice with a spoon or by twisting the cheesecloth. Discard the pulp and measure the juice into saucepan.
Add 1/2 cup sugar for each cup of juice and cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
Bring to a boil and cook 2 minutes.
Chill and pour into covered jar. Store in refrigerator.
Add two tablespoons to each glass of prepared iced tea. Stir well and garnish with a lemon slice.

I actually tried this a few night's ago, after seeing your post - and I didn't really like it, haha. It doesn't surprise me though, because I'm not a huge blueberry fan! But, I did pass on the mix to a friend of mine, and she's absolutely obsessed with it now. She's used the whole batch!
