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 (64.0-ounce) bottle unsweetened green tea, divided
- 1 (3-inch) piece fresh ginger, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup wildflower honey, plus more to taste
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.
