Watermelon Sweet Tea Popsicles

To me and to most, no soul food meal is ever complete without a glass of sweet tea. But as it gets hotter and hotter this summer, I find myself gravitating towards frozen desserts that leave me refreshed and cooled off. That feeling led me to combine sweet tea and popsicles into watermelon sweet tea popsicles, which everyone loves during the summer.
