Milky infusion of fragrant tea (eg. Jasmine, Earl Grey) set with egg, gelatine etc. Served with whipped cream. Mollard 1802 adds "a few coriander seeds washed, a stick of cinnamon, a bit of lemon peel, and sugar". (Grigson 1974, etc)

Original Receipt in Raffald 1769;

TO half a pint of milk put a quarter of an ounce of fine Ceylon tea, boil them together, strain the leaves out, and put to the milk half a pint of cream, and two spoonfuls of rennet; set it over some hot embers in the dish you send it to table in, and cover it with a tin plate; when it is thick it is enough.
