I made this recipe last weekend and it was a huge success!

I wasn't sure when I first read the recipe, but the flavour of the tea makes a very refreshing, naughty snack without being sickly. I will definitely make these again!

Hi Michelle, did your mixture look a little grainy when it was still warm? It tastes nice but isn't smooth like a mousse, I'm just wondering if maybe the milk/cream was too hot or what's happened! I'll wait for a test one to set but wondered if yours looked a little grainy when you made it...much appreciated!

Hi klquinn75 how did yours work out? I'm thinking of doing these for a dinner party next week.
