Oolong Tea Jelly

Recipe from Tea In Taiwan
A new way to beat the heat of summer - oolong tea jelly.
This is a traditional Taiwan food and easy to make.
It offers a refreshing, cool snack.

10 g Oolong tea leaves (I used a flowery oolong)
water 600g (2.5 cups)
20g unflavored gelatin (1 1/2 tablespoons)
(I used a little more just to give firmness)
100g granulated sugar (1/2 cup)
(I found it alittle too sweet)

1. soak tea leaves in hot water until they open
2. combine gelatin and sugar
3. add tea to gelatin and sugar mixture and boil
till the sugar dissolves
4. pour the mixture into molds, let it cool,
then refrigerate until set

If desired, a whole tea leaf can be placed in the
bottom of individual molds. Experiment with
the sugar, this jelly is also nice unsweetened!
It would be pretty cut in different shapes
for a tea party.

I'd like to make this unsweetened for myself here at home. It's such a simple recipe. Really doable for a bachelor like me. --Jason

Oh, oh, oh --- I just saw this post --- I missed it before. This sounds delightful! Ideas are swirling in my head. I think the 'less sweet' would be my fav too --- so the real tea flavor can come through. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Marilyn!
