Milk Tea With Coffee Jelly
Cool and refreshing milk tea with coffee jelly is so easy to make and fun to drink. Make some and impress your friends. You know you want to. 😉
I love, love, love making this for people, because it’s delicious, but it’s also pretty novel. As popular as Boba is in some places, there are tons of people who have never heard of it before, so serving them coffee jelly in their drink is a fun surprise! Plus, it’s just a damn refreshing treat. (Seriously, WATCH IT!) 😉
- 1 packet gelatin (2 1/4 teaspoons)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons water
- 2 heaping tablespoons (35g) granulated sugar
- 1 cup very hot strong coffee
- 3 cups hot water
- 3 bags black tea
- 2 tablespoons (25g granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream or milk
In a medium bowl, stir together gelatin and water. Allow gelatin to bloom for 3 to 5 minutes before stirring in sugar and very hot coffee. Stir until sugar and gelatin are completely dissolved.
Transfer mixture to a 7×5-inch dish. Refrigerate until solid, at least three hours.
While your coffee jelly is firming up, add tea bags to hot water and brew very strong black tea. Allow to cool slightly before placing in the refrigerator to chill.
Once jelly is firm and tea cold, stir together tea, sugar, and cream. Add more sugar and cream to taste. Cut jello into 1/2-inch cubes (slightly smaller if serving with a straw), and add to your glass until the glass is about 1/3 of the way full. Pour in milk tea.
Serve with a spoon (or a boba straw) and enjoy!
