Green tea is great hot but it’s even better frozen. On a hot day, this simple granita is just what you need to keep your spirits and your antioxidants up. And it’s so easy to make. Time to eat your tea!
1. Steep the green tea bags in hot water for 10 minutes. Discard bags.
2. Stir in the sugar and pour the mixture into a 9 by 9 inch baking pan. Cover and put into the freezer.
3. After 1 hour, using a fork, scrape the frozen top layer. Scrape and break frozen blocks into pieces. Continue to scrape every 15 to 20 minutes until the granita has a fluffy, snowy consistency – about 2 hours. Eat immediately or keep for 3 days, scraping every so often.
- 2 green tea bags

Ann's Tips and Tricks
For the best results, use plain green tea, without any additional flavorings. We always prefer to go easy on the sugar, so add it to taste, but please go easy.
