Main Ingredients

3.5 cups water

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 oz unflavored gelatin (we used knox, grass-fed would be best)

8 tablespoons loose leaf tea (we used coastal cranberry spice tea)


1) Add maple syrup to water. A 4 cup glass measuring bowl works great for this.

2) Remove 1 cup of water/maple syrup liquid and set aside.

3) Add loose leaf tea to 3 cups of water/maple syrup liquid to a pot and bring to a boil.

4) Once a rolling boil has been reached turn down heat and simmer for 15 minutes. (Do not steep black/green teas this long or they will get bitter. Use double the tea and half the steep time instead.)

5) With one minute left to steep, add 1 oz of gelatin to the 1 cup of liquid that was set aside. Whisk until well incorporated.

6) Pour gelatin mix back into 4 cup bowl. Strain steeped tea and liquid mix directly into 1 cup of gelatin mix. Whisk well.

7) Pour into mold of choice and chill for at least 3 hours. Cut into squares, or different shapes with cookie cutters or even shred for a gelatin salad!

Additional Notes

Herbal and fruit teas work great, as well as coffee, kombucha and fruit juice. If using black or green tea please see notes above in directions. Find the Coastal Cranberry Spice Loose Leaf Tea here
