I came across tea flavoured jelly in one of these Taiwanese Dessert spots and I thought what a lovely idea that was. There is this subtle tea flavour with a bit of sweetness, and that slight bitterness to balance. Combined with some lychees, it becomes this refreshing and easy dessert for a nice hot day.

Oolong Tea Jelly with Lychees

Ingredients
10g oolong tea leaves

3. Add the sugar and turn down to low heat.

4. Once all dissolved, strain the mixture to remove any excess tea leaves. Then, pour into moulds or a baking tray if you prefer to slice it afterwards.

5. Place the moulds/tray into the fridge for 20 minutes or until set.

6. To serve, pop out the jellies (or cut the jelly into cubes if in a tray) and serve with lychees and add a few tablespoons of the lychee syrup.

Recipe Notes

  • You can substitute the oolong tea for any other tea of choice. I recommend jasmine tea but would adjust slightly depending on preference of tea flavour.
  • If you prefer to have the jellies on its own, you can double the sugar in the recipe for something a bit sweeter.
