INFORMATION:

Today, gelato is more closely associated with Italy than France. Amazingly, unlike every other country on Earth, Italy produces more artisanal gelato than factory made (upwards of 55% is made onsite within the gelateria where it will be sold.) In Italy, by law, gelato must contain at least 3.5% butterfat. (By comparison, ice cream in the USA must contain 10% butterfat. Herein lies the primary difference in flavor.) The low fat content in gelato is offset by a higher sugar content, combined with natural fruit purees, which give the confection a bright, fruit forward flavor that is often more powerful than ice creams.

Celebrate gelato's rich history by brewing a cup of Lime Gelato herb and fruit tea. A juicy blend of herbs and dried fruits, you're going to love this one as much as Voltaire when he wrote: "Gelato is exquisite. What a pity it isn't illegal". Yum.
HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
