Made this one into a watermelon smoothie. Yummm!!
First made this as a cold brew. Brewed for about 13 hours. The cold brew was slightly astringent. I did not intend to leave it for that long. But I found there was more watermelon taste as a cold brew vs when hot.
I had previously cut up a ginormous watermelon to make watermelon salad and had so much that I decided to freeze some to make smoothies. The recipe I was thinking of was a margarita recipe, involving blending frozen watermelon with margarita mix. Mmmmm. But I decided that I should try it with tea first. It turned out really well, although I think I used too much watermelon. It is of smoothie consistency, strongly tasting of sweet watermelon, but there is a base of green tea that I can taste. It pairs really good with the watermelon and gives the watermelon a slight candy-like flavour, that is not overly sweet. Very good. Margaritas next time!!
Edit: Made this one again, but this time I used much less watermelon. Did about 1 part watermelon to 3 parts tea. It is more like watermelon juice this time with a bit of pulp. It is still sweet, but much less sweet than when I made it with lots of watermelon. Both ways have their merits. I am enjoying it like this today.
