Honeydew Green Tea

Honeydew Green Tea

Serves 8 to 10

This refreshing summer cooler is also tasty made with other sweet, ripe melons in season, such as cantaloupe or watermelon. For a more rustic version, skip the step of straining the tea.

  • 4 cups honeydew melon chunks (about 1 1/4 pounds), plus more for garnish
  • 1 (64-ounce) bottle unsweetened green tea, divided
  • 1 (3-inch) piece ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup wildflower honey, plus more to taste
  • 1 bunch mint, for garnish

Put honeydew, 2 cups of the tea and ginger into a blender and purée until smooth and frothy. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, discard any remaining pulp and transfer honeydew-tea mixture to a large pitcher. Stir in remaining tea and honey, chill and serve over ice, garnished with honeydew and mint.
