Chrysanthemum Tea Jelly Recipe

If you are not using pre-sweetened konnyaku mix as mentioned in this recipe, add appropriate amounts of sugar or rock sugar to taste.

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 10 mins


  • 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)

Additional tool(s) needed

  • jelly moulds


  1. In a pot, add water and bring to a boil. When water is boiling, add chrysanthemum flowers and simmer for about 2 minutes.
  2. Turn off the stove, 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 the water is boiling, add konnyaku jelly powder. Stir until the powder is fully dissolved. Turn off the stove.
  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.

    is it suitable to add in osmanthus flower?



  9. Always — January 30, 2013 @ 3:40 pm

    Do u know if it is possible to just use chrysanthemum tea, sugar and gelatin?


    • wiffy replied: — January 30th, 2013 @ 5:12 pm

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


      • Always replied: — February 8th, 2013 @ 11:20 am

        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.
