Herbal Tea Jelly (涼茶啫喱)

After years tasting herbal tea..., this is the first time I  made herbal tea jelly for my kids...especially for little Jackie..she loves jelly.

Since young I already familiar with chinese herbal tea, my mom always cook some soup and add some ingridients brought from chinese medicine store. She said it's good for detox our body and strenghten our immune system.

Chinese herbal tea can be easily found in Hong Kong, in the corner of the street, in the mall, on the MTR ...anywhere. It's various kind herbal tea you can choose, all already cooked, stored in the plastic bottle, hot/cold. In summer people likes to drink cold herbal tea, but in winter most likes hot herbal tea.

How to make your own chinese herbal tea :

Ingredients :

  1. 1 pack chinese herbal tea ( enough for 1 family, 4-5 people)
  2. 2 litre cold drinking water
  3. rock sugar (as desire)


  1. Rinse your chinese herbal tea.
  2. Put in your stock pot, add water, when start boiling reduce to medium small heat.
  3. Cook for 30 minutes turn off the flame, add rock sugar, stir until the sugar dissolve. You can taste the tea, if the taste too strong, you can add more boiled water.
  4. Let it cool and store in the fridge before served, or served when still warm.

To make chinese herbal jelly :

  1. 1 pack jelly powder ( I use Nutrijel brand, no color, and follow the instructions on the packaging)
  2. 700 ml cooked chinese herbal tea 
  3. 2 tablespoon castor sugar
  1. Mix together jelly powder, sugar and cooked chinese herbal tea in clean pot, cook until boiling, stir until all powder and sugar dissolve.
  2. Turn off the heat, pour into jelly mould, let it cool, put in the fridge before serving.
Notes :

Instead of make your own chinese herbal tea, you can buy ready to drink chinese herbal tea from chinese medicine store.

I think I'm gonna try one using a tulsi herb in the recipe. How long do I need to put it in the refrigerator to have the perfect jelly? I mean there is a certain hours to product a good one?

Hi Diana...sorry for late reply, to have a perfect jelly you can use unflavored jelly powder than follow the instruction how many water we need (replace the water with the tea). It's depend which brand of jelly powder you use.
