Stirring frequently, heat milk until it just begins to bubble.

Remove from heat.

Steep green tea in hot milk for 5 minutes.

Strain green tea from milk or remove tea bags.

Dissolve sugar in hot milk.

Cool in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Stir in cream, vanilla, and lemon juice.

Pour mixture into your ice cream maker.

Churn about 20-25 minutes or according to manufacturer's instructions.

*Note: To vary the intensity of the green tea flavor, you can change the length of time that you steep the tea.

Steeping the green tea for 5 minutes produces my favorite flavor. Steeping the green tea for only 3 minutes produces a weak green tea flavor. Steeping the green tea for 7 minutes produces a strong green tea flavor.

With an increased awareness of the health benefits of green tea, green tea products have grown in popularity. Many people are trying this Japanese frozen treat and loving its unique flavor!
