Tea-Infused Jello: For Kids or Adults | Stash Tea

These delicious jello shots are fun to do and even more fun to enjoy. We have two recipe options: one suitable for kids and another for adults.

This recipe is also an example of chemistry! See how states of matter can (deliciously) change. When a liquid (the tea) interacts with a solid (the gelatin powder), there is a chemical reaction that creates what we know as jello.

This recipe is part of the weekend-long Stash Summer Camp schedule. If you’re on the hunt for a fun-filled weekend, we’ve planned one all out for you!
