Watermelon Iced Tea

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:  Summer screams watermelon, pools, and heat. This summer tea satisfies the tastebuds with watermelon and the coolness of the drink quenches your thirst as you sit by the pool during the heat of the day.


    • 6 teaspoons black tea leaves, preferably Nilgiri or Ceylon
    • 3 cups boiling water
    • 3 cups ice
    • 1/6 or 1/4 watermelon, cut into cubes
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 sprig of mint, plus a few extra for garnish (optional)


    Step One:
    1. Combine the tea leaves and boiling water in a teapot.
    2. Let steep for three to five minutes.
    3. Strain the tealeaves.
    4. Set the tea aside in the fridge or freezer until step three.
    Step Two:
    1. Combine all ingredients but the tea in a blender. Blend until smooth using the “blend” setting. It should take about 30 seconds. As needed, stop blending to push the ingredients toward the blades with a spoon.
    2. Once the mixture is smooth, you can proceed to step three or cover the mixture until shortly before you plan to serve Watermelon Iced Tea. (Combining the watermelon mixture and the tea just before serving prevents the drink from separating.)
    Step Three:
    1. When you’re almost ready to serve Watermelon Iced Tea, pour the brewed black tea over a pitcher of ice. Most of the ice will melt, but you’ve brewed the tea extra strong to accommodate for this dilution.
    Step Four:
    1. Just before serving Watermelon Iced Tea, combine all ingredients in a large glass pitcher. Stir well. If the drink begins to separate into layers (as is natural for agua fresca-style drinks), simply stir it again.
