I was experimenting again and followed the granita recipe in The New Tea Book. basically, make a pot of tea, sweeten it for a desserty flavored treat, freeze it, but check on it every once in a while so that it doesn’t just make a big ice tea block. use a fork or spork to break up the crystals so you have a nice shaved ice treat. I used the best syrup from my sisters farm and it came out marvelously. more experiments to come!
