Easy and Fluffy Black Tea Mousse

Easy and Fluffy Black Tea Mousse

The calories are reduced as much as possible in this recipe. You can also make delicious mousse with low fat milk and low fat heavy cream.

Ingredients: 100 ml container x 2

Gelatin powder
2 g (2/3 teaspoon)
1 tablespoon
100 ml
Black tea
1 tea bag
10-15 g (adjust to your liking)
Heavy cream
20 ml


1. Pour the water into a heatproof container. Soak the gelatin powder.
2. Heat milk and the tea bag in the sauce pan until just before boiling. Cover with a lid and simmer for another 5 -10 minutes.
3. Remove the tea bag and turn down the heat to low. Add Step 1 and sugar. Mix to dissolve them. Please be careful not to boil.
4. Remove from the heat and cool. Transfer to a bowl and chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes. I usually cool it over ice water then put it in the fridge.
5. In another bowl, whisk the cold heavy cream until it is the same consistency as the mixture in Step 4.
6. Combine Steps 4 and 5. Mix evenly and pour into containers. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge again.
7. Decorate the top as desired (toppings not listed in the ingredients).

Story Behind this Recipe

The Theme of the Week this week was "Sweets Using Black Tea." I remembered that I made "Fluffy and Creamy Coffee Mousse" (Recipe ID: 284738), but I hadn't made a black tea version. It has different ingredients and uses a different process, so I uploaded this recipe here.
