Fruity Tea Jelly

Fruity Tea Jelly

Jelly only really comes in the usual boring flavours, so why not experiment with your favourite tea?

Having recently discovered my love for teapigs Super Fruit tea I couldn’t resist placing a large order online before Christmas. When it arrived I spent the whole day making cups of tea, until I realised I had a few boxes of gelatin in the press. I set off to brew a fairly large batch of tea, which took quite some time and then it was time to have some fun!

Making your own jelly is dead simple and takes only a few minutes once the tea is brewed, so why not give it a shot with your favourite juice, tea or fruits!

Method

  1. Measure out 500ml of boiling water into a jug. I put the 4tsp of tea into a muslin bag, however you can use tea-bags or a tea infuser type thing, whatever you have handy. Leave to infuse for several minutes, tasting every minute or two, until you have reached a flavour you are happy with.
  2. Begin adding the sugar, constantly stirring and tasting, once again until you get something you are happy with.
  3. Put the tea into a small pot and allow to cool. Add one 10g sachet of gelatin and stir until dissolved.
  4. Turn the heat on and bring to the boil for 2 minutes, or as specified on the packet.
