Thanks for the post.

There is a book by our friend Diana Rosen called "The Book of Green Tea," available on Amazon.com here:

Many, many great recipes for all things green, including a delicious sorbet!

Enjoy,

I would like to know if the health benefits of green tea only come with hot tea? Would I get the same benefits in sun tea, or if I just put a tea bag in a cup of water and let it sit for an hour?

Here is a recipe for Mango and Green Tea Sorbet that I love. I think a friend of mine found it at weight watcher's, although I am not certain of the origin, but I digress....

Mango and Green Tea Sorbet Recipe
Ingredients
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup loose green tea leaves
1/2 cup sugar
3 ripe mangoes
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Instructions
Combine water and tea leaves in a saucepan. Bring just to a boil, remove from heat and let steep 5 minutes. Strain, discarding the leaves. (Do not press leaves to extract liquid, this makes the liquid bitter.) Return tea to clean saucepan, add sugar and bring to a boil. Boil until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool about 30 minutes.

Peel mangoes and cut fruit from pit. In a food processor or blender, puree mangoes with lemon juice. Add tea and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass 9-inch baking dish and freeze about 3 hours.

Transfer mango mixture to a food processor. Pulse until smooth, 30 to 40 seconds. Serve at once or store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Soften 10 minutes before serving.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings

This doesn't fit the low fat requirement, but it is tasty and I'm sure you could substitute something low fat for the cream if you want.

Homemade Ice Cream
Green Tea Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients:
2 egg yolks, 2 tablespoons dry green tea, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 vanilla pod, 1 1/4 cups double (heavy) cream, 1/4 cup caster sugar, 1 1/4 cups milk, 2 tablespoons boiling water

Take the dry green tea and soak in boiling water with the tablespoon of sugar for 10-12 minutes. Into a saucepan put the vanilla pod and milk and gently bring to the boil then pour this over the tea. Leave to stand for 5 or 6 minutes. Beat the egg yolks with the 1/4 cup caster sugar in a separate bowl and then strain the milk mixture into it. Transfer to a saucepan and gently heat, stirring all the time, until the mixture is thick. Leave to cool. Whip the double (heavy) cream and fold into the cooled tea mixture. Transfer the complete mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
