Ingredients

2 cups fresh lychees or canned (drained), peeled, and de-pitted

3 cups strongly brewed black lychee tea

8 limes juiced, with 8 halves reserved to be hollowed out and used to present the granite

2 limes, zested, reserve 1 teaspoon for garnish

Directions

Place the lychees in a food processor and puree until very smooth. Add the brewed black tea, lime juice and lime zest and pulse a few times to incorporate well. Transfer the mixture to a 10 by 10-inch pan. Freeze overnight.

Using the bottom of a fork, scrape the granite into the hollowed out limes. Scrape a small amount of the granite onto the centers of the plates and top with the filled limes (2 halves per plate).

Garnish with the reserved lime zest and serve.
