White tea gets the dessert treatment in a slushy icebox Granita. Delicious and so refreshing.
-4 cups of water
-3 white tea tea bags (or tea of your choice)
-2 sweet yellow plums (or fruit of your choice)
- a few drops of stevia to taste.
-Bring water to a boil
-add tea bags and steep for 5-10 minutes
- cut up fruit, remove pits and put in Vita-mix or food processor, blend with white tea
-pour into a large pyrex and freeze
-After an hour, run a fork through the mixture to break up any large pieces of ice; return to the freezer. Repeat every 15 to 20 minutes until the consistency is fluffy and no large ice crystals remain, about two or three more times. Scoop into glasses and serve.
-Granita may be made ahead and stored in a plastic-covered container in the freezer for up to three days. Fluff with a fork before serving.
