    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a saucepan, bring water and mint leaves to a boil. Remove from heat. Set aside to steep until water is cool.
    2. 2
      When mint tea is cool, strain through a paper towel-lined sieve and pour into a pitcher.
    3. 3
      Slice the cucumber into thin slices. Add to tea.
    4. 4
      Cut honeydew melon in half and clean out the seeds. Use a melon-baller or ice cream scoop on the flesh of the honeydew. Add about half of the melon balls to the tea.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate the tea for 12-24 hours.
    6. 6
      To serve, pour into a tall glass over ice. Add a mint sprig and a melon ball or two for garnish. Enjoy!
    7. 7
      You may sweet the drink with a little sugar or simple syrup if desired.
    8. 8
      NOTE: It is imperative to use only an unwaxed cucumber, as the wax will cause the tea to cloud and carry a bad flavor. If you cannot find unwaxed cucumbers, simply peel before slicing.
