How to Make Winter Melon Tea
Try this Chinese way of quenching your thirst by making winter melon tea by simply simmering winter melon with tons of sugar for a sweet cooling drink.
Mix winter melon with brown sugar in a soup pot. Set aside for about 1 hour, until some liquid has formed.
Add rock sugar and mix. Place the pot on the stovetop, turn on the heat, and bring to a boil. Cover the pot, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook for about 2 hours until the winter melon is completely transparent.
Turn off the heat. Pass the pot content over a strainer. Strain and press as much liquid through the strainer. The strained liquid is the winter melon tea syrup.
To serve, make tea with 1 part concentrated winter melon syrup and 3 parts water. Add some ice cubes, and stir everything together.
Serve cold and enjoy.
