    dividend's Note:

    I was intrigued by the idea of making jelly out of tea when someone posted a request for recipes. I tried this one, and I like it alot. Obviously, it all depends on the quality of your tea. So far I've only tried this with a very high quality organic chai, and it is SO good! If you find a type of tea that works really well for this, post a review and let us know! []

      This recipe worked better for me with powdered pectin. I added the pectin and brought the tea to a boil, then added the sugar. The jelly set beautifully.

      This is such a GREAT recipe, wish I could give it 10 GOLD stars. I did use powdered pectin, it seems to work best for me and this set up almost before I could get it into jars, this morning it's lovely and the scent - OMG!!! I used a high quality Chai Tea and added one of a Ginger Tea just for the flavor. Did not use any juice, just upped the water. Can't wait to have this on scones, yum!!! I'm going to try this with some other types of tea soon.
