i just made lavender tea sorbet with no fruit added, so i'm sure plain green tea would work! to make a creamier sherbet you could use half milk or cream instead of all water. i used 1 part sugar to 2 parts liquid, but you can go as unsweet as 1 in 4 if you add a couple of tablespoons of vodka to stop it from freezing solid. it tastes a lot less sweet once it is frozen and blended, because of the additional air.

My chai recipe is:
2 pods green cardamom
1 stick cinnamon
4 whole cloves
8 whole peppercorns
1/4 tsp dried ginger

Grind all above ingredients in a mortor and pestle.Roast all above ingredients in a dry frying pan until aroma is released. Add 3 cups water to mixture in pan and bring to a boil, add 1/2 cup milk, 2 Tbsp black tea, and 2 Tbsp sugar. Sttep for 10 minutes strain and serve warm.

Why can't you cool this off and make sorbet out of it?

 Oh, ookpik and Inna, those both sound wonderful. I'm definitely going to have to try them. Surely I have most of those ingredients somewhere around here. I might even have to get on this tonight.

Did a quick little search for you:

Here's a recipe for green tea ice cream, and an alternate green tea sauce to pour over vanilla ice cream (which might be easier unless you have an actual ice cream maker!):

A note on chai: my father's worked out a (very non-traditional) way to make it in our espresso machine! He places three or four tea bags and the chai masala (spices) in the little cup that usually holds the coffee grounds, and then sends the water through once, sometimes even twice, to brew a strong, spicy tea (you could still brew this in a regular pot; Dad likes his gadgets). Then he adds steamed milk, sweetened with maple syrup (the real stuff, not artificial). He calls this Fijian Maple Chai, since he came up with the idea after my sister brought some chai masala home after a study term in Fiji --- it's very unusual, but the maple tastes phenomenal with the spices, and it's worth a try!
