Chai dessert

Found this amazing recipe online the other day and thought i would try it out ,it looks so good im thinking of making for dessert on christmas day when my daughters boyfriend comes for dinner
he´s a chef to be soon so i need to impress him haha .
i really like how they look and tasted but i think i would use a bit more of the gelatin to make it bit more stiff but the taste was really yummy and i love chai tea so im all for that spicy flavor .

Chai Cream
Makes about 8 half cup servings
5 cups, plus 1/2 cup, heavy cream
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 envelope gelatin
2 tea bags Chai tea
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
5 black peppercorns
1 recipe whipped cream
In a large saucepan, combine 5 cups of heavy cream and the granulated sugar, and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat.
While the cream mixture is warming, combine the remaining half cup of cream with the envelope of gelatin. Stir together and let sit about five minutes. After the gelatin has absorbed the cream, stir together until smooth; set aside.
Once the cream-sugar mixture comes to a simmer, remove from heat and stir in the gelatin mixture until dissolved. Empty the contents of the tea bags into the pan, then stir in the cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, and peppercorns, and allow to steep for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, place the pan in an ice bath in a large glass or metal bowl, cover with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic directly to the surface of the pudding, and allow to cool for 20 to 30 minutes. Once cooled, remove the plastic wrap, and pour and press the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove as much of the tea leaves as possible.
Cover and place in the freezer for 20 minutes. After chilling, divide the mixture evenly between 8 or 6-ounce serving dishes. Chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
Garnish with fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Serve cold.
