The Blueberry Tea is a cocktail made from tea and liqueurs. It is served hot, and could be considered a variant on the hot toddy. Its name derives from its fruity taste, which some compare to blueberries.
Blueberry Tea is usually served in a brandy snifter, to concentrate and hold the alcohol fumes released by the tea’s heat. Ingredients are typically
1 oz. Grand Marnier liqueur
1 oz. Amaretto liqueur
Hot Orange pekoe tea to taste.
Preparation is simple — Add both liqueurs to the snifter and then fill with hot tea to taste. Swaddle the brandy snifter in serviettes or a cloth to protect the hands. Some suggest a sugared rim, or adding sugar to the tea, or a lemon garnish.
