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.
