Easy and Fluffy Rose Black Tea Mousse

My girl was on a school trip to Shanghai and she bought me a set of tea leaves.  So sweet and thoughtful of her.

Other than making a pot of nice fragrant tea, I used the tea leaves to make some mousse. Here's sharing this chill dessert which is pretty easy to make.

I half-filled my 200ml pudding jar.
Decorated with some mint leaves upon serving.

Below version with adjusted quantity and my notes in blue
Easy and Fluffy Rose Black Tea Mousse
Ingredients (100ml container x 4 or any appropriate dessert bowls/cups)
6g Gelatin powder
3 tablespoon water
400ml Milk (I used skimmed milk)
2 tea bag black tea <*rose tea leaves - refer to step 2>
40 - 50g Sugar
80ml fresh cream

Method :
1) Pour the water into a heatproof container. Soak the gelatin powder.

2) Heat milk and the tea bag in the sauce pan until just before boiling. Cover with a lid and simmer for another 5 -10 minutes.
*you can use tea leaves instead of a tea bag. Add 1.5 teaspoon of tea leaves to the saucepan, simmer then strain.

3) Remove the tea bag and turn down the heat to low. Add Step 1 and sugar. Mix to dissolve them. Please be careful not to boil.

4) Remove the pan from the heat and cool. Transfer to a bowl and chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
Alternatively, place the bowl over some ice water to speed up the cooling. Then put it in the fridge.

5) In another bowl, whisk the cold fresh cream until it is the same consistency as the mixture in Step 4.

6) Combine Steps 4 and 5. Mix evenly and pour into containers or bowls. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge again.
(I chill them for about 3 hours)

7) Decorate the top as desired.

Do adjust the sweetness to your taste and preference.

I like the fluffy soft smooth texture with a hint of rose aroma.  Enjoy !

Have a sweet weekend !
