INGREDIENTS: 

2 herbal tea bags or equivalent loose tea in a tea ball.  I use one made with roasted chicory, blackberry leaves, hawthorn and hibiscus.

2 cups small dice watermelon cubes frozen.  Get them good and solid in the freezer so they hold up and keep your chilly beverage chilly.   You can put them in ice cube trays or a zippie bag.

½ cup fresh blueberries, frozen. 

Fresh basil sprigs & 2 small watermelon wedges for garnish.  Mint leaves and lemon wedges make good garnish too.

DIRECTIONS: 

  • Put serving glasses in the freezer.  I use quart size canning jars for big people and pint size for the littler people. 
  • Add tea bags to very hot water in two quart size glass jars, or place in a glass jar in water and put in the sun for a few hours.  Let the tea steep about 5 minutes in the very hot water method.
  • Remove tea bags and let the tea cool to room temperature.  Then put in the refrigerator to cool very well. 
  • Once the tea is cool, put a cup of frozen watermelon and ¼ cup frozen blueberries in the serving jar/glass.  Garnish with basil and watermelon wedge & serve immediately.
