  • 1 small Watermelon
  • 4 cups Water
  • 3 Black tea bags
  • 1 tbsp Granulated sugar
  • A handful of Mint leaves
  • I cup Freshly chopped watermelon
  • Ice cubes



  • Boil 4 cups of water and 1 tbsp of sugar in a pan on a medium flame for 4-5 minutes or till the sugar dissolves in the water.
  • Turn off the flame and now add the tea bags or tea powder in the boiling water and cover the pan with a lid.
  • Let the tea bags sit for 15-20 minutes.


  • Now start preparing the watermelon juice. Cut the Watermelon into half and start by scooping the flesh of the watermelon. Keep aside few watermelon pieces in a bowl and puree the rest of the watermelon in a blender and strain the fresh juice and pour it into a pitcher.
  • There's no need to add sugar in the watermelon juice as it is already naturally sweet in taste plus we have a sweetened ice tea syrup.
  • Now remove the tea bags from the water and start with preparing the iced tea.
  • Take 2 tall glasses or mason jars as per your liking.
  • How to serve per glass-
  • Pour watermelon juice in a glass, top it with concentrated ice tea syrup and ice cubes. Stir it well and garnish it with fresh mint leaves and watermelon pieces.
  • Serve it cold.
