1 cup water, boiling
enough tea to make a strong cup
scant 1/4 cup sugar
1 envelope (or 2 sheets) of gelatin
Steep the tea in the hot water until desired strength (much stronger than you would drink it, but not bitter). Stir in sugar until dissolved. Sprinkle powdered gelatin* over the hot tea and stir until completely dissolved. Pour into vessel(s) and refrigerate until set.
*If using sheets, soak sheets in cold water in a bowl. When sheets are softened, add to hot tea and stir until dissolved.
