G is for... Gunpowder granita

As G night was celebrated on the 5th November, I thought it would be shameful not to include something with gunpowder tea in it somewhere. Its flavour is quite subtle, so I didn't want it to compete with anything else. After all the rich food before, I thought a palate cleansing granita would be just the ticket - so, gunpowder granita it was!

Gunpowder granita 

1 pint of water
4 teaspoons of gunpowder tea
2 tbsp caster sugar

Boil the water in a saucepan and add the tea. Leave to steep for 5 minutes and strain. Add the sugar and stir until it has melted and leave to cool. Once cold, transfer to a a large tupperware box, so the sweet tea is shallow, and pop it in the freezer. Give it a good stir to break up the ice crystals every half an hour for 2 to 3 hours.
