Author Notes: Early grey tea is the quintessential British afternoon pick-me-up. When it’s hot in the summer these popsicles will sub in for a hot tea and still hit all the sweet, milky-tea notes. All you’ll need to go along with these popsicles is a tea biscuit!

- Place tea bags in a large jug or container. Pour in 1 1/2 cups hot water and let steep, 10 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract and sugar. Mix in the whole milk.
- Divide mixture between 8 popsicle molds. Secure popsicle sticks with clothespins, or let mixture freeze until slushy, about 1 hour, before adding popsicle sticks. Let popsicles freeze completely, about 2 hours. Briefly run warm water under the molds before removing popsicles.
