MethodIn large heatproof measure or bowl, steep tea in 8 cups (2 L) boiling water for 4 minutes. Discard bags.
Meanwhile in large saucepan, bring melon, sugar, 1 cup (250 mL) water and mint leaves to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until melon is broken down, about 8 minutes. Add to tea; let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.
Strain through cheesecloth-lined sieve into pitcher, pressing solids only gently so beverage remains clear. Serve with ice cubes.
