Tea Jelly Recipe

Make your own TEA JELLY!

Tea Jellies are a delicious, economical home-made treat that also make a great gift and are fast and easy to make – in just 20 minutes, you can have a selection of yummy jellies ready to go!

A tea jelly is basically like jam, but is infused with the flavour of tea instead of fruit. They make a delicious spread on scones or bread.  Also serve them with cheese or meats, and add them to yogurt and desserts, or use them to sweeten tea, instead of honey or sugar.

The technique for making jelly is believed to have originated in the Middle East during the Middle Ages, and they eventually became a household staple in France and England.  Popular with kids and grown-ups, everyone will love them!

Ingredients:

5 tbsp Silk Road Tea*

1 3/4 cup boiling water

1/4 cup lemon juice

3 cups sugar

1 envelope liquid pectin (Certo).

Steep tea in the boiling water for 10 minutes then strain. In a pot, combine tea, lemon juice & sugar, then bring to rolling boil. Boil hard one minute. Remove from heat. Stir in pectin. Working quickly, fill jars. The jelly will set up quite rapidly. Thanks to Chef Barb Gunn from The Teahouse at Abkhazi Garden for this fabulous recipe!

*The following teas make fabulous jellies: Blackcurrant & Elderflower, Blood Orange, Spicy Mandarin, Philosopher’s Brew, Summer Shangri-la, Sour Cherry, London Fog, Imperial Earl Grey, Express Chai, Sublime. Please note our ultra-fresh, premium teas are very flavourful so you need less per serving than with other brands, so you may require more tea leaves if you are not using our teas in these recipes.
