Refreshing Watermelon Pomegranate Sweet Tea with #AmericasTea

cbiasdisclosure watermelon sweet tea Bigelow Tea has a special place in my heart. Isn’t is funny how certain brands can bring back memories for us? The reason Bigelow tea is so memorable for me is my mom used to drink their “Constant Comment” tea when I was a child. The sweet and spicy citrus blend would swirl in the air. I remember vividly asking my mom what that smell was and she told me it was her Constant Comment tea. I think my very first taste of tea was this brand, even. watermelon iced tea I love products that are made right here in America. Bigelow tea is one of these brands and that is why when thinking about recipes to use in my celebration of America on the 4th of July, I had to pick up some Bigelow tea at Walmart to make this wonderful and refreshing watermelon sweet tea recipe. I chose watermelons because to me, they are a very typical summer food and I thought that was fitting for the biggest celebration of the season. tea on shelf I wasn’t aware there are so many kinds of Bigelow tea, though so I had a hard time choosing which one to go in my recipe. In the end, I chose Bigelow’s Pomegranate Black Tea as I thought it’s fruity notes would be excellent for this sweet summer recipe. watermelong tea recipe For this recipe, you will need to freeze some watermelon to use as your “ice cubes” in your sweet tea. The funny thing about watermelon is, it freezes very fast. I put my cubes in and about an hour later, they were frozen solid. So, there is really no need to freeze them overnight and you can quickly make some more if yours start to run low during your 4th of July bash. Just place them on a cookie sheet, in a single layer in your freezer for quickest results. watermelon ice cubes I hope you have a happy and safe Independence Day Celebration this year!

    That sounds absolutely delicious! We don’t have sweet tea here in New England – we just have iced tea and it’s definitely not the same.
