Peach and green tea tart

Step by step recipe:

  1. 30 min.Peach and green tea tart : Photo of step #1
    Prepare 400 g Confectioner's custard (Crème pâtissière, or French pastry cream), after leaving the 1 teaspoon tea to infuse in the milk for 5 minutes.

    I advise you to use green tea, which goes very well with peaches, and is not at all bitter.

    Apart from infusing the tea, follow the method for classic confectioner's custard (crème pâtissière, or french pastry cream). At the end, add an attractive green colour with 5 drops food colouring.

    Cover and leave to cool.

    If possible, glaze the fruit with a little apricot glaze for a glossy finish. This will also help protect the fruit from oxidation (if you are not serving the tart within a couple of hours).

    Keep cold before serving.

Remarks:

You can very the recipe by using a black tea instead of the green, but leave this to infuse for no longer than 3 minutes, or the custard flavour will be too bitter.
