How to Make Winter Melon Tea

No ratings yet

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.

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 2 hrs 15 mins
Total: 2 hrs 30 mins


  • 3.5 lb winter melon meat, rinded and seeded, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 9 oz brown sugar
  • 1.8 oz rock sugar


  1. Mix winter melon with brown sugar in a soup pot. Set aside for about 1 hour, until some liquid has formed.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. To serve, make tea with 1 part concentrated winter melon syrup and 3 parts water. Add some ice cubes, and stir everything together.

  5. Serve cold and enjoy.
