    Annacia's Note:

    This refreshing, simple dessert is a delicious twist on a summer standby, and it's great to have on hand for hot afternoons. For a frozen mint iced tea, add several fresh mint sprigs with the lemon juice and sugar mixture; discard mint before freezing. You can use any tea you like. Most of the prep time is just standing time and the cooking time is freeze time.

      What a nice treat, Annacia! I cheated the time factor and poured the chilled mixture into the frozen insert of my Cuisinart Ice Cream machine and we had granita in about 25 minutes. It's very refreshing, like a tea sno-cone. Thanks for a great recipe. Made for 1-2-3 Hits.

      Yum! We have a snowcone machine and I (Bird) eat them all day long (made with Splenda), so this recipe was a great find. Buddha made the recipe for me, as directed (using regular sugar). We froze it in ice cube trays and used the machine to shave it. This is a very light and refreshing treat that just says to you.... 'It's summertime' :)
