Watermelon Ginger-Mint Tea Ingredients
- 8 cups of cubed watermelon (pink part only)
- 4 cups of water
- 2 Tbsp of thinly sliced fresh ginger root
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1 cup of fresh peppermint leaves
- 2 black tea bags of choice
Watermelon Ginger-Mint Tea Instructions
- Set aside a few pieces of watermelon to use as a garnish.
- Then, liquify the rest of the watermelon in a high powered blender in batches. Pour about 1/8th of the liquid watermelon into an ice cube tray to make watermelon ice cubes. (Optional, add a mint leaf into each ice cube as a cool garnish).
- Strain the rest of the liquid watermelon to remove any small fruit pieces and chill the strained watermelon water in the refrigerator.
- Separately, bring the water and sliced ginger root to a boil. Stir in the honey and remove from heat. Add most of the peppermint leaves and the 2 tea bags to the hot water and steep for 10 minutes. Keep some peppermint leaves as a garnish for later.
- Strain out the herbs and tea bags, and keep the sweet ginger-mint water. Allow to cool.
- Mix the chilled liquid watermelon and ginger-mint water together and refrigerate until the watermelon ice cubes are ready.
- To serve, pour the watermelon ginger-mint tea into tall glasses. Add ice cubes.
- Optional: Garnish with mint leaves and a few pieces of watermelon.
