An excellent recipe for a delicious tea. It contains fresh ginger, lemon juice, green tea leaves, and fresh sugar.

Cooking tip: If you don't have a food processor or just like a more coarse texture, scrape the surface of the frozen granita with a sturdy fork or spoon after it has rested at room temperature for 30 minutes.
