Blood Orange Granita

Jen Conrad TeaChef Level 1

A refreshing summer palate cleanser



  • 8 c. hot water
  • 3 tbsp. blood orange tea
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. fresh squeezed lemon and orange juice (1 each lemon and orange)
  • grated peel from lemon and orange


Brew tea in hot water. Steep 5 min. Strain out leaves.

Add sugar to hot tea and stir until dissolved. Add the citrus juice and rind. Pour into 2 shallow pans. Put in freezer. Stir with a potato masher or a fork every 30-45 min. until entirely crystallized. It should have the texture of snow.

Put gently into containers in the freezer, quickly so it doesn't melt, and scoop out some on a hot summer's day and share with your friends.
