SERVES 6

INGREDIENTS

5 black tea bags

1/3 cup water

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

2 cups heavy cream

1/2 cup whole milk

2 lemons

Make a cup of tea with three bags of black tea and brew for ten minutes. Add 1/2 cup milk to the tea (don't remove the bags) and chill in the refrigerator, along with all of the other ingredients, for a couple of hours.

Crack two eggs into a large bowl and beat them until they're fluffy. Add 1 cup sugar and continue mixing another minute until incorporated. Then add 2 cups of heavy cream and your milk/tea mixture, and beat again.

Add the juice and zest of one lemon and one bag of dried tea leaves. Give the whole thing a last whirl. Freeze the cream base according to your ice cream maker's instructions. When the ice cream is stiff, scoop it into a tupperware dish and set it aside in your freezer.
