Cold, cold watermelon and our refreshing Plum + Roses Brew from is the perfect hot summer afternoon treat, with fairly minimal guilt. Our Plum + Roses Brew is a delicate black tea blend with a delightful array of stone fruits – cherries, plum and peaches, along with hints of cacao nibs for natural sweetness and refreshing rose petals. The combination with watermelon is indeed a killer one. I’ve made a granita out of it, but you could also wonderfully pour this into a popsicle mould for ice lollies or whip up a batch of tequila, gin or vodka cocktails!

400 g watermelon cubed and deseeded
