Wow, it was FABULOUS! I expected it to taste really bad, I was making it for my husband and some of his oriental friends (I was doing ice cream on request and this was next on the list), tried a bit as I packaged it and was amazed! The only thing that dissapointed me what that I didn't think to make more! The recipe basically makes enough for like 4 people so I didn't get to have a full serving. I took the advise of some of the raters and use 6 bags of tea. I thought the taste was perfect, but then again I have never had green tea ice cream so I have nothing to compare it to. But the taste strength did seem fine, not to thin or strong. I am making this one again reeeeaaaal soon...this time all for me! Great recipe, simple, easy and delicious!

Delicious! I made 1.5 quarts sine that's the size of the Cuisinart ice cream maker. We'll definitely make this again and experiment with other flavors by infusing with tea leaves or herbs as recommended. Thanks!

very good! But I will try to add more green tea flavor becuase I could hardly taste it.
