5 cups (serving size: 1/2 cup)

The tea mixture may appear curdled after you add the milk. But don't be alarmed; you'll be rewarded with a smooth, luxurious gelato when the mixture comes out of the ice-cream freezer.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine water and sugar in a large saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and add tea bags. Cover and steep 5 minutes; discard tea bags. Stir in juice; cool completely. Stir in milk.

Step 2

Pour tea mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

I substituted half of a cup of whipping cream for the milk, which thickened it up nicely. Next time, I will also use more tea bags since the earl grey flavor was very mild, and was nearly overshadowed by the lemon juice's flavor.

I love Earl Grey tea so I was excited to make this. It is stretching it to call this "gelato" as it has the consistency of ice milk. I still liked it alot. It turns into a slushie as it melts. I'm going to make a Earl Grey ice cream using a typical ice cream base that I'm sure will be delicious. It won't be low calorie but what true gelato is?
