until dissolved. If desired, stir in juice. Freeze 4-5 hours,

*Green Teas tend to be milder in flavor; so when
preparing with any Bigelow® Green Teas (i.e. Green with Pomegranate, Green with Mango, Green with Lemon, Green with Blueberry, or Green with Jasmine) use 15 bags
to deliver a flavorful frosty treat!
Tips: If mixture becomes frozen solid,
defrost on counter about 15 minutes and break up using ice cream
scoop or strong serving spoon.

hollowed-out citrus cups. Simply trim the bottom of your fresh

cups. Serve immediately. If you refreeze, thaw about 5
minutes before serving.
