Ok, so I guess I'm late the game but holy cow how have I never made tiramisu before??? Or should I say TEAramisu !
I've always loved the taste of tiramisu and thought that I could easily switch out the coffee for tea but never knew how easy it was to make!
From looking at recipes online, it seems like everyone has a slightly different way of making the cream but the way I made it is super simple and takes pretty much no time!
I bought a brand of Lady Fingers on amazon that worked well for me. I will say that one of the most important parts of the recipe for me was to make sure the tea you use for dunking is cool otherwise the lady fingers will crumble so fast.
A note about the tea you choose: choose something you like. This may be obvious but the flavor is pretty obvious in the dessert so don't pick something you dont like. I would also suggest not picking a super blended tea because there may be too many conflicting flavors. I used the Nepal Kanchanjangha Noir black tea from Nepal Tea that came in my sips by box.
If you were wondering why I chose to make these tearamisu sweets in glasses it's because I made them for my sister and her husband for their wedding anniversary! They recently had a sweet babe who takes up a lot of their time and I wanted to make sure they had something special to enjoy on their special day!
One thing I learned in the layering process is that I used wayyy too much cream on the bottom so I wasn't left with much for the top and as you can see below some of the lady finger mixed with the cream. Luckily you get to cover it up !
I broke the lady fingers in half to fit the glass but if you use something larger or place it in a regular serving dish you wont have to do this.
For the top I used a combination of cocoa powder and cinnamon! I think you can definitely experiment in this area and top it with other things! I already have plans to make a matcha one!
Don't let the glasses fool you, there is plenty of marscapone cream and ladyfingers to go around in that glass!
This is seriously such a simple, quick and delicious dessert to make for any occassion!
