Marco Polo tea ice cream


by: Cooking Granny

Marco Polo tea is quite spicy and floral, hut you could make this with any tea you find that has a fantastic flavor and aroma, perhaps a fruit tea or chai. Something quite potent, like mango — you don't want anything too delicate, as freezing has the effect of closing down flavor a little, and too subtle a tea might get lost. Good—quality green tea is also very good and refreshing.
