Sweet Science Ice Cream

A cup of tea and a scoop of ice cream might not seem to have much in common, but at Verdant Tea Tasting Room & Tea Bar in Seward the two are living together in perfect harmony. Sweet Science Ice Cream, a small artisan company behind some the best ice cream in the Twin Cities, works with Verdant Tea Room's David and Lily Duckler to develop tea-infused frozen treats, such as chai ice cream and matcha green tea milkshakes. Sweet Science is already known for its elegant but intense flavors like pear-Reisling sorbet, soft salted caramel, roasted banana sherbet, and subtle olive oil ice cream, and its inspired new line of flavors upholds the creamery's reputation. These reverently ground and brewed teas and superb, small-batch ice creams are worth seeking out.
