Seven Blossoms Tea Watermelon Lemonade

This is your new go to summer lemonade! Tadin Seven Blossoms Tea has lemon balm and valerian root, both known for their relaxing properties. Add fresh mint leaves to enhance the peppermint and spearmint that are also in the tea. Gently rub the mint leaves between your fingers to bruise them or vigorously stir to release the oils. Note: add as little or as much lemon juice as you like, adding more will make it more tart.

The watermelon juice can be store bought or homemade, see the notes below the recipe on how to make your own. Recipe created by the talented @chefcarla_c
