Lychee granita is a refreshing treat on any hot summer day. This is a recipe that showcases the lychee fruit’s beauty and delicate sweetness. This granita is simple to make and bright on the palette. I’ve added some Japanese sencha tea to make it even more refreshing. If you decide to make it, just make sure to hang around your freezer for 2 hours or so, otherwise you will end up with one huge block of lychee ice (which you can melt down and “re-scrape” if necessary). Every twenty minutes or so you will be “scraping” until you get a light, fluffy slush. Steeping the green tea in the fridge overnight and making the simple syrup ahead of time will make the process even simpler. More tea and tea food recipes at ThirstyForTea.com!
