This interesting-sounding recipe was found in the June 2009 Best Recipes cookbooklet, Summer Salads & Sandwiches. Preparatrion time does not include time needed for the brewed tea to chill.


  1. Pour boiling water over tea bags, then cover & brew for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove tea bags, then squeeze the excess tea out of them, before chilling the tea ~ You will need only a portion of this brewed tea for this recipe.
  3. Put 2 1/2 cups of the tea into a blender bowl, along with the ice cream, then blend at high speed until totally combined.

This was sheer genius! *slapping forehead* Gently, because my family generally makes my head hurt from banging it on the kitchen counter.

What a great refreshing drink! Not too thick but very tasty. I used vanilla ice cream this time but I'm looking forward to trying it with lemon or lime sherbet. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

This is soooo good and refreshing. I cut the recipe in 1/2 as I was only serving myself. Perfect amount. Really a wonderful taste with just a subtle hint of tea. I used 1/2 fat vanilla icecream. Thanks for a winner Syd!~ Made for ZaarStars.
