Too hot for Earl Grey? Nope!

I love Earl Grey tea. Even in the summer, I love it but it has been extremely hot the last two days. So hot that even after a shower, 6 am is HOT. So hot that you can feel the heat underlying & undermining the air conditioner. So a cuppa tea has not been an option.

Well on my walk yesterday, I passed one of the many gourmet food trucks that have appeared in NYC recently... this one, an organic ice cream truck. Lo & behold, one of the flavor options was EARL GREY!! Yay, music to my mouth... cold, refreshing, delicious. Hmmm, I thought, I can make it at home! And make it the way I love to have it... with "milk" & honey. I also brought out the citrusy bergamot always at the heart of the Earl Grey flavoring with a splash of fresh lemon juice. 

This was the perfect cup of summer tea. And the perfect ice cream. The perfect ~ dessert. Perfection. Sigh.

Earl Grey Ice Cream

  • 1 cup Earl Grey (*preparation below)
  • 1-2 TBSp Honey
  • 1 TBSp fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/3 cup Sugar

*Earl Grey prep~ I made mine in the Keurig/K-cup on the most concentrated setting. Or you can use 2-3 tea bags steeped in 8 oz. hot water for 5 minutes.

Prepare the Earl Grey tea. Mix in the honey & lemon juice. Allow tea to cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, pour the cream into the ice cream maker. Slowly add the sugar. Allow to mix for 10 minutes, then add the cooled down tea. Keep ice cream maker on for another 20 minutes (or until softly frozen, then place in the freezer.

Serve & ENJOY! Makes 2 large servings or 4 small servings.

I always find a way to make what I love most!
Inspiration's everywhere.
