Chrysanthemum Tea Jelly

   

Chrysanthemum Tea Jelly
Refreshing and healthy jelly made with chrysanthemum tea (菊花茶)

This is a fun way to consume chrysanthemum tea … by eating it! It is really simple with a box of konnyaku jelly powder. Using brewed chrysanthemum tea instead of plain water, there is no artificial colouring or flavouring in this jelly. Chrysanthemum tea is known to be an excellent thirst quencher because of its “cooling” property which means it lowers body heat. This dessert is perfect for our tropical heat. This is a truly refreshing, healthy and yummy dessert.

Chrysanthemum Tea Jelly

I was first introduced to this dessert when my friend Anemone made some for me to try. It was love at first bite and she taught me how to make it. Thanks girl!

Ingredients
- 1 packet of pre-sweetened* konnyaku jelly powder (mine is 120g)
- water (according to the konnyaku jelly powder box instructions; mine requires 550ml)
- dried chrysanthemum flowers 菊花/朵朵香 (20g for every 500ml water)
- 1 to 2 tsp wolfberries, soaked in water till puffy (about 20 minutes)

* If you’re not using pre-sweetened mix, add appropriate amounts of sugar to taste.

Additional tool(s) needed
- jelly moulds

Making Chrysanthemum Jelly
Jelly moulds and Konnyaku jelly powder I used (you can use any brand)

Directions

1. In a pot, add water and bring to a boil. When water is boiling, add chrysanthemum flowers and simmer for a short few minutes (roughly 2 minutes).
2. Off the flame, take out the flowers and run the tea through a sieve. Return the chrysanthemum tea back to the pot and bring back to a boil.
3. Once water is boiling, add konnyaku jelly powder. Stir until the powder is fully dissolved. Off the flame.
4. Add 3-4 wolfberries to each jelly mould, then pour the jelly solution prepared in step 3 to fill each mould. Let the jelly cool down a bit in room temperature and chill in fridge till the jelly is set.

    Ooooo ..I love konnyaku jelly! Used to make them with fruits when I was still living in Singapore, but have stopped making it ever since I’ve moved to Melbourne. Now that it’s summer over here, I might make some of these, and share it with the locals here:) Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi! I tried to make the dessert but it turned up to be a failure as they were extremely bitter, probably due to the amount of wolfberries that were put into the boiling hot water of Chrysanthemum tea together with a packet of 10g konnyaku jelly powder. In the end, I have no choice but to throw them into the bin. Sigh!

      I bought from an old 杂货店 which sells all sorts of crockery. I think you can find it at Phoon Huat or Sia Huat … you can google these two places for the contact.

    Thanks so much for your fuss-free recipe! My first attempt making konnyaku jelly chrysanthum tea flavour & I added some wolfberries (as like your osmanthus jelly), it was a great success today! The output jelly looks good & tastes good, I am happy with it :). Your instructions are clear & easy to follow, really glad that I chance upon your blog.

      I have not tried with gelatin, so not sure about how the texture will turn out but you can experiment.

        I have tried it with gelatin. It is very refreshing. However, I m not able to remove the jelly out of the moulds. Will make in cups and eat with spoon next time.
