Step by step recipe


Stage 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.

Stage 2

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.

Stage 3 - 25 min.

Poach 4 peaches (preferably white) in 1 litre Poaching syrup, then cut into 8 slices.

Stage 5 - 3 min.

Assemble the tart

Spread the green-tea custard in an even layer in the pastry case.

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Arrange the well-drained peach slices on top of the custard.

Stage 7 - 3 min.

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).

Stage 8

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.
