Earl Grey Impérial Tea Jelly—from iconic French tea house Mariage Frères—is still made the old fashioned way from the Mariage family's 19th century recipe. Cane sugar and a Earl Grey Impérial black tea infusion is combined with fruit pectin and a touch of lemon juice, and then slowly cooked in a copper bain-marie. The result? A silky, aromatic jelly with sweet, delicate notes of Darjeeling black tea and citrusy bergamot.
Enjoy slathered on a warm scone topped with clotted cream. Or warm in a pan until melted anduse as a syrup or a glaze—drizzle on vanilla-scentedPain Perdu, brush over a fresh fruit tart to finish or add a teaspoon to a glass of Crémant for a sparkling tea cocktail.
