Watermelon, Mint & Lemon Infused Iced Green Tea

Green tea bliss.

Watermelon-green-tea

One of the things I use most in my kitchen is a large jar for making tea.

I don’t even remember when or where I bought it because I’ve had it for so long.

It gets used more in the summer of course, and it makes the best tea.

In this recipe, the tea is brewed in the refrigerator and is made with green tea, watermelon, mint and slices of lemon for good measure.

What a bouquet of flavors.  It tastes so good and is amazingly refreshing.

Served over ice, this infused green tea is smooth, and just perfect on a hot day.

My favorite part is eating the big pieces of watermelon after they soaked in the green tea mixture.

I love the flavor that the watermelon takes on.
