Makes 4
2 caffeine-free herbal fruit tea bags of your choice
500ml  boiling water
1-2 tablespoons Perfect Sweet® xylitol, to taste
3 tsp powdered gelatine
200g fresh blueberries
Mint sprigs, to decorate
Place tea bags in a heatproof jug (for this recipe we used rosehip) and pour in 375ml of the boiling water.  Infuse for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Add xylitol to the infused tea and stir to dissolve.
In a small bowl, place the remaining 125ml boiling water, sprinkle over gelatine and whisk until dissolved.
Add sweetened water to the infused tea and stir well. Cool to room temperature.
Divide berries into four 160ml serving glasses and add the room temperature jelly mixture. (The berries will rise to the top if the jelly is too warm.) 
Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set. Decorate with mint sprigs before serving.
Vegan Fruit Tea Jelly
Omit the gelatine and extra boiling water. Place 125ml  cold water in a small saucepan. Stir in 1 teaspoon agar agar powder and stand for 5 minutes. Gently bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Proceed as per recipe.

Wow, I must say that this fruit tea jelly is an exceptional juice. Because I after having the recipe from you tried this at home. Also, you can get uk essay writing service to write your quality assignment easily. And all of my family members loved this fresh fruit juice that you shared. Thanks for this.
