Lemonade Iced Tea Sorbet
Makes 8 servings
- 3 tsp oolong tea
- 2 cups water
- 1/2-2/3 cup honey
- 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 large lemons)
- 1 cup ice water
- mint sprigs (optional for garnish)
Using 3 tsp of tea leaves, brew 2 cups of oolong tea and strain. Dissolve the honey in the tea while it is still warm and allow it to cool completely.
Once cooled, add in the lemon juice and ice water. Chill the mixture in the fridge for at least an hour.
Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and churn until you are happy with the consistency. Transfer the sorbet to a freezer-safe container and freeze for an hour, or until firm.
When you're ready to serve, garnish with mint sprigs and enjoy!
