A while back ago I did a lot of experimenting baking with matcha green tea powder.  This weekend I started up again.  When I made my almond tofu, it occurred to me that I should be able to make a green tea flavored agar jelly, since the almond tofu one is basically agar jelly with almond flavoring.

 

I bought a box of agar jelly mix at Ranch 99.  I followed the directions written on the back of the box, and then added 2 tablespoons of matcha green tea powder and a cup of milk.  It didn’t come out exactly as I had hoped.  I would have preferred a different shade of green, instead of the dark, diluted green.  I think maybe next time I’ll add more milk to try to get a brighter shade of green.  Also the green tea powder didn’t dissolve completely in the agar jelly, no matter how much I mixed it.  So when it was hardening, the undissolved green tea powder settled at the bottom of the molds.  It ended up having a pretty next effect with the darker green tea and it still tasted fine.

For my molds, I used my mini bundt pans.  The jelly tastes just like agar jelly with a green tea flavor.
