Refreshing Lychee & Jasmine Jello

Refreshing Lychee & Jasmine Jello

The fragrance of the lychee and jasmine will allow you a refined moment of comfort.

Ingredients: 5 glasses

[Jello]
Jasmine tea
500 ml
Granulated sugar
25 g
Pearl Agar 8
15 g
[Lychee Syrup]
Granulated sugar
50 g
Jasmine tea
50 ml
Lychee
5
[Decorations]
Chinese wolfberries (if available)
to taste

Steps

1. (Preparation) Make the jasmine tea and strain it. Soak the wolfberries in slightly sweetened hot water to soften.
2. Combine the pearl agar and 25g of granulated sugar well. (So that the agar doesn't form lumps.)
3. Heat the jasmine tea to 85°C (until right before boiling) and then remove from the heat. Add Step 2 and mix with a whisk to dissolve.
4. Pour into a Tupperware or other plastic container. Once cooled, chill in the refrigerator until it hardens.
5. [Make the syrup] Remove the skins from the lychee. Remove the pit as you crush the lychee into pieces. (Save any juice that runs out at this point.)
6. Heat the 50 ml of jasmine tea and 50g of granulated sugar. Once it comes to a boil, stop the heat.
7. Combine the lychee, the lychee juice, and the hot syrup. Once cooled, chill in the refrigerator.
8. [To Finish] Once the jello has hardened, roughly break it apart with a spoon as you transfer it to the glasses. Top with lots of syrup and decorate with the wolf-berries.
