Grass jelly is known for its cooling properties, and is a popular Asian dessert particularly enjoyed during the summer months. Also known as leaf jelly or herb jelly, Grass Jelly is made from a Chinese plant called Mesona, which has a mild and perhaps slightly bitter taste. Served chilled, Grass jelly is made boiling the stalks and leaves of Mesona plants with other ingredients, before cooling the mixture to create a jelly consistency. In Taiwan, Grass Jelly is known as Xian Cao, and is used as a topping for a multitude of desserts and drinks such as bubble tea or shaved ice.
