  • Summary

    Inspired by a trip to Libya, this mint tea granita serves four iced tea drinks, or a good 6 portions of granita. Use any loose leaf green tea, even those with added lemon or other ingredients like ginger. Mint tea is made usually with gunpowder varieties but as those are an acquired flavour, you can opt for any green tea you like.

    Ingredients

    • 1 litre of waterprint button transparent
    • 1 tbsp of green tea, loose leaf
    • 50g granulated sugar (or a bit more; adjust to your taste)
    • 4 generous sprigs of fresh mint, plus one sprig to serve
    • 4 large peaches, ripe but firm, halved, skinned, stones removed
    • zest of a lemon, plus juice and lemon wedges to serve
