Author Alan & Marlys Arnold - Adventures with Tea


  • 1 Angel food or Pound cake
  • 1 pkg. Vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk
  • 2 cups Fresh strawberries
  • 3 Tbsp Strawberry jam
  • 1 1/2 cups Heavy whipping cream infused with 4-5 tsp G’day Berry loose tea**


  1. Make pudding according to package instructions and place in the refrigerator to set up.
  2. Before assembling, slice strawberries and cut 1-inch squares of cake.

  3. To build the trifle, start by placing cake cubes in the bottom of a trifle dish and spread a bit of jam on top of each square. Next, a layer of fruit followed by a layer of pudding. Repeat all of the layers two more times.

  4. Chill before serving, then top with tea-infused whipped cream** and garnish with berry slices.
  5. Serves 6-8

** To make tea-infused whipped cream:

  1. Add G'day Berry loose tea directly into the whipping cream. Place into the refrigerator to cold-steep overnight (10-12 hours). Before whipping, pour through a strainer to remove the loose tea.

  2. In a chilled mixing bowl, beat the infused whipping cream and 1-2 teaspoons of powdered sugar until soft peaks form.
