Earl Grey Tea Cream Dessert

Simple yummy dessert that exudes earl grey tea fragrance and a light creamy taste.


  • Fresh milk: 300ml
  • Earl Grey tea bag: 1
  • Egg: 2, yolks and whites separated
  • Caster sugar: 2 tbsp
  • Gelatine powder: 3 tbsp
  • Hot water: 3 tbsp
  • Double cream: 150ml
  • Fruits: to serve


  1. Place milk and tea bag into a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  2. Once it starts to boil, remove from heat. Leave to steep for 15min till well-coloured.
  3. Beat egg yolks with sugar. Strain into milk mixture.
  4. Return saucepan to heat. Simmer for 10min, stirring continuously till custard thickens slightly. Remove heat and set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together gelatine powder and water. Place in a water bath and stir till dissolved.
  6. Mix gelatine mixture into tea mixture.
  7. Separately whip cream till thick but not stiff. Fold into custard.
  8. Separately whisk egg whites till stiff. Fold into custard.
  9. Pour custard into dampened moulds. Leave to set in fridge for 2hrs.
  10. Serve chilled with fruits.


  • Leaving the custard to set for 2hrs after the gelatine is mixed into it (step 6 above) and stirring it once in a while will prevent all the gelatine from settling right at the bottom of the mould (which was exactly what happened in mine haha). But it’s a small problem and affects the aesthetics more than its taste!
