Wintermelon Fruit Tea Recipe


Wintermelon drinks remind me when I was younger chewing dried caramelized wintermelon candies. The wintermelon gourd fruit has a shape and similar attribute of a huge cucumber. The fruit is dehydrated by hand and then added sugar- then placed under the sun to completely dry for 2-3 days. Delightful to chew and enjoy.


  • Cocktail shaker (for mixing/ shaking)
  • Jigger (for measurement)
  • Mug or Cup (for brewing the tea)
  • Glass or Plastic Cup (for making and enjoying your cold milk tea drinks)


  • 40-50ml of fruit syrup (based on sweetness level preference)
  • 200ml cold brewed tea (from tea bags) – jasmine green tea works best (assam, earl grey or oolong optional)
  • Ice cubes (1/3 of the shaker cup)

We are making 500ml of Wintermelon Fruit Tea. Very simple. So let us go for it.

STEP 1. BREW THE TEA. Simply place the tea bag into a tea cup with 200ml recently boiled water (90C). The tea should sink into the bottom of the cup. Brew for 10 minutes. Refrigerate before using. (Note that we are going to use 200ml of this brewed tea)

STEP 2. Using a cocktail shaker, add 40-50ml of fruit syrup. Add into the shaker 200ml cold tea and 1/3 cup of ice cubes. Shake well for 10-15 sec then pour into a cup.

STEP 3. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy.
