Another Summer Flavor: Peach Jasmine Tea

When it's really really hot outside and sweats are dripping down my forehead, the first thing I think of to quench my thirst is a jug full of iced peach tea. It's light, not too sweet, and wonderfully refreshing. Well, today was the day when I was in desperate need of my icy cold peach tea fix. The sun was shining so brightly and it was blistering hot outside. Just when I started boiling some water to steep my tea bags in, I got a wonderful idea. "What if I make a cake with the flavor of my favorite summer drink?" I started looking for recipes and drawing an image of the cake. Finally, I got it. Layers of white cake, peach mousse, jasmine tea peach gelee, and jasmine tea mousse. That's easy enough. After I went to the grocery store to buy a few missing ingredients, I began constructing my layered mousse cake. Making the individual components were the most complicated steps since I didn't have exact recipes for each component. Plus, my nose was a little bit stuffy so I couldn't really taste or smell the mousse and gelee. Oh well, I figured the cake would at least look good :D

Just as I suspected, the flavor of each component was not strong enough. Also, the cake was rather bland and not sweet at all. Ughhh, I hate stuffy nose -____-" I need to make this cake again when my nose is working normally. I have to increase the sugar and steep the tea bags longer to extract more jasmine flavor. If I were to present this to Food Network's Chopped judges, they would say "The idea was great, but the execution was not on point." :D Nvm, there's always next time ^^
