This Honey Chamomile Panna Cotta is simply a silky, melt-in-your-mouth kind of pudding with delicate chamomile flavor and finished with a honey drizzle.
There is so much to love about a panna cotta. Firstly, it is pretty effortless to make. For the best part, you can play around with a wide spectrum of different flavors and richness. In addition, you get to have fun jiggling your plate from side to side. This delicate dessert wobbles beautifully on the plate.
I decided to start the Tea Infused Panna Cotta Series because tea and panna cotta make a great dessert with an interesting taste experience. My first time making tea-infused panna cotta came from the previous Rose Infused Panna Cotta. It is dreamy, silky, and rich with a unique and delicate rose flavor. I could not get enough of it.
This Honey Chamomile Panna Cotta is my second recipe for Tea Infused Panna Cotta Series. It includes very few basic ingredients and is simply a mixture of dried chamomile flowers infused with cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, as well as gelatin. The gelatin sets the mixture and creates a firm silky creamy smooth texture.
Chamomile or camomile is a daisy-like flowering herb that comes from Asteraceae family of plants. It is well-known for its flower, particularly the yellow heads. Fresh and dried flowers are used for various culinary and medicinal purposes. It has a gentle floral aroma that is very relaxing. That is why the tea can be very calming and act as a natural sedative.
About Honey Chamomile Panna Cotta
I start with chamomile flavor since it is a classic and a staple for almost every tea enthusiast. Chamomile tea is one of the top three enjoyed teas in the world. Therefore, I believe everyone can make this recipe at home since it is pretty common everywhere. I got the natural dried chamomile flowers online instead of using tea bags for better flavor. The result is a light and fresh grounded earthy flavor with hints of floral sweetness.
Due to its natural light and floral notes, I reduce half of the sugar to balance its sweetness. A drizzle of honey transforms chamomile panna cotta into a true tea dessert instantly.
