This lovely mousse cake is when East meets West.
The subtle, sweet & fragrant oolong mousse with crispy Asian pears coupled with the chewy & moist pecan brownie.
When it melts in the mouth, I can feel the delicacy & sweetness, gradually overtaken by the rich & nutty chocolate brownie.
I've chosen to use Asian pear over William pear.
William pear usually go tender after poaching, but I wanted crunchy bits in the mousse & Asian pear retains its crisp texture.
Plus, Asian pear is very juicy with a delicate & refreshing fragrant.
It is one of my favourite fruit.
Oolong tea varies in taste & the tea I used is originated from China which is sweet & fruity.
The taste of oolong tea is vital so I would recommend to get the best oolong tea you can get hold of.
I really like it, especially the mousse & I'll definitely make it again :)
You can also make a 'West meets West' version, simply replacing the oolong tea with black tea like earl grey, Asian pear with William pear.
