Philip フィリップ

I named this cake after my friend who happened to love mandarin oranges and tea. The tea that I picked was quite unusual to be used in pastry world : the Oolong tea. Since we both like Oolong tea I decided to give it a try. The woody sweet earthy aroma of the Oolong tea mixed really well together with the sweetness of the mandarin orange mousse and the acidity of the lemon curd.

Swee San: Thank you! It was kinda risky attempting Oolong tea mousse but it all paid off in the end.

Pei-Lin : LOL no worry!! Thank you for your nice compliment!

Michelle : Thank you! My recipe came from different resources( Mousse à la Mandarine and the Biscuit joconde sans beurre from Hidemi Sugino and Oolong Tea Mousse I adapted from Earl Grey Tea Mousse recipe I found from Google, and the lemon curd jelly I made it myself).
