Hungry for travel? Whet your appetite with an irresistible tea granita, a slush-like drink inspired by the typical Sicilian dessert. It’s kind of like sorbet, but with a granier texture – hence the name granita.
The main ingredient in our version is Just Beet It, a tart & fruity maté blend infused with beetroot, goji & blackberries and super-energizing guarana. Just steep it, freeze it, flake it & you’re ready for takeoff.
