Mint Tea Gelatin

My father-in-law has a very nice garden in which he grows many kinds of lettuce, herbs, tomatoes, etc., and he always shares those fresh organic vegetables with us. This year, his mint plants are growing well and so he gave us bunches of them last week, and with them I created this dessert dish. Mint, earl gray tea, cream, and frosted mint leaves finish this dessert wonderfully. Tastes very refreshing.
