Lemonade Iced Tea Sorbet

Annacia *


The recipe uses English Breakfast tea, however, there is no problem using your favorite tea to make this. The churning time is however long it takes your ice cream maker.

Also I'd like to add that, to me, this tastes by far the best in the just churned soft serve stage. As a homemade sorbet it tends to become to icy when fully ripened.
