Low in calories, high in nutrients, you can't ask for much more!


Blueberry Hype

I've been hearing so much about these little blue fruits and their benefits, so I decided to do a little research on whether there was actually a thing called blueberry tea. And lo and behold there was!


Since then I've tried a few recipes on blueberry tea made from the berries and from the leaves, and they are both equally as tasty and as healthy as claimed by health nuts all over the world. You can take it hot or cold, it will be just as refreshing. I thought it would be a good idea to share them with you. So here goes!
