The Lime Gelato Herbal Tea blend from English Tea Store is a juicy blend of herbs and dried fruits.
Innovated at ParisÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ oldest continually operated cafÃƒÂ©, CafÃƒÂ© Procope, gelato was the creation of Sicilian chef, Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli. His customers, which covered the spectrum of high society (including an American: Benjamin Franklin, a Frenchman: Napoleon Bonaparte, and a philosopher: Voltaire) were among the first in the world to sample gelato. The sweet icy treat was produced using an ice machine Coltelli’s grandfather had developed in Italy, that he would go on to perfect in Paris.
Today, gelato is more closely associated with Italy than France. Amazingly, unlike every other country on Earth, Italy produces more artisanal gelato than factory made (upwards of 55% is made onsite within the gelateria where it will be sold.) In Italy, by law, gelato must contain at least 3.5% butterfat. (By comparison, ice cream in the USA must contain 10% butterfat. Herein lies the primary difference in flavor.) The low fat content in gelato is offset by a higher sugar content, combined with natural fruit purees, which give the confection a bright, fruit forward flavor that is often more powerful than ice creams.
