Drink of the Week: Watermelon Tea from Davids Tea

Biting into a juicy slice of watermelon is pretty much requisite for any Fourth of July gathering, and thanks to today’s Drink of the Week—the Luscious Watermelon tisane from Montreal-based DavidsTea—you can enjoy those same summery fruit flavors in your glass. A naturally sweet, mouthwatering mix of dried watermelon, honeydew and apple (with bits of carrots, strawberry leaves and beetroot also flavoring the mix), this tea is great served over ice either on its own, or mixed with a splash of vodka, rum or tequila. So if the summertime melons at your local produce stand have yet to fully ripen, this tea provides a delicious backup plan.
