1 liter (4 1/4 cups) freshly-brewed rooibos tea

3 to 4 tablespoons honey

Zest of 1 clementine or orange 

Juice of 4 clementines or oranges 

Zest and juice of 1 lime 

Thumb-size piece fresh ginger, roughly chopped

Small handful fresh mint leaves, plus for garnish


  1. Add the rooibos, honey, clementine zest and juice, lime zest and juice, ginger and mint to a large glass jug or pot. Allow to steep for at least 10 minutes, preferably longer.
  2. Strain the liquid through a sieve into a shallow container with a lid. Cover and freeze for 2 to 3 hours. Remove from the freezer and break up any ice crystals that have formed, using a fork. Return to the freezer and repeat one or two more times at 1 1/2- to 2 hour-intervals, depending on the preferred size of your ice crystals (larger or finer).
  3. Serve the granita in small glasses, garnished mint leaves. Eat immediately.
