Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 9 hours
Serves: 6

Ingredients

Sorbet:

  • 2 cups (500 mL) - water
  • 1 cup (250 mL) - granulated sugar
  • Pinch - salt
  • 8 bags - Tetley Bellini Herbal Tea
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) - lemon juice

Directions

  1. Sorbet: Pour the water into a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in sugar and salt. Add the tea bags and remove from heat. Steep, covered, for 5 minutes. Squeeze the tea bags to release as much liquid as possible; discard. Cool to room temperature. Stir in lemon juice.
  2. Pour into a 9-inch (2.5 L) square metal baking pan. Freeze for 4 hours or until firm. Break into chunks and transfer to a food processor. Purée until smooth.
  3. Scrape into an airtight container. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm. Can be prepared and stored in the freezer for up to 1 week.
  4. Garnish: Scoop sorbet into 6 serving dishes. Top evenly with peaches and raspberries.

Tetley Tips

  • For a Tetley Mint Bellini sorbet, use 6 Tetley Bellini Tea bags and 2 Tetley Peppermint Tea bags.
  • As an alternative to using a metal pan, the initial tea mixture can also be poured into a standard ice cube tray, which produces easy to handle frozen cubes for puréeing.
