4 tea bags green tea
1-½ tablespoons agave nectar, to taste
2 cups filtered water (see tips)
6 sprigs fresh mint, + extra for garnish
1-½ cups ice cubes
1 lime, freshly squeezed
1 large watermelon
Making iced green tea:
Finely chop the mint. Heat 2 cups of water until the water is hot, but not more than 160°F. The water should basically be bubbling a little and there should be some steam starting to rise, whereas with black tea, you should reach a roaring boil. Remove from the stove. Immediately place the mint leaves and tea bags into the water. Steep the green tea for about 2 minutes (no longer!). Add agave nectar. Strain the liquid and discard the tea bags and mint leaves.
Add ice cubes and let cool to room temperature.
