Place tea bags and sugar in large heat­proof bowl. Pour in boiling water and steep for 10 minutes. Transfer to refrig­erator and continue to steep until cold, about 30 minutes.

Using fork, scrape frozen mixture to break it up into crystals. Store in freezer until ready to serve. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight con-tainer and frozen for up to 1 week.) Divide granita among cups or bowls. Top with fresh apple slices.
