Black Tea Ice Cream

I saw black tea ice cream being made on a cooking show and I want to make it.

I asked AI to create a recipe and an image.

Black Tea Ice Cream Recipe


  • 5 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 black tea bags 


  1. Combine milk, salt, and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir frequently until the sugar has dissolved and the milk is about to reach boiling point, but do not let the milk boil.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the black tea bags. Cover and let steep for 15 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks until smooth.
  4. Gradually pour the warm milk-tea mixture into the egg yolks, whisking continuously to temper the yolks.
  5. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon (about 5-7 minutes). Be careful not to let it boil.
  6. Remove from heat and strain the custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean bowl.
  7. Let the custard cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until chilled.
  8. Once chilled, churn the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  9. Transfer the churned ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for a few hours until firm.
  10. Serve your delicious Black Tea Ice Cream and enjoy!

Storage Tip: Store this homemade Black Tea Ice Cream in the freezer in an airtight container with a piece of parchment paper or wax paper pressed on top for up to one month. It will help prevent ice crystals from forming.

Feel free to experiment with different tea varieties or even add a touch of vanilla or spices to customize your ice cream. Enjoy your unique and flavorful treat! 🍦

I do have a variety of teas that I could try. Folgers even make coffee that is in tea bags. I could seep three of those and have coffee ice cream.
