Sweet and tangy wild blueberry notes accentuated with full body green gunpowder.
A recipe “To Make Short Paest for Tarte” from the Proper newe Booke of Cokerye printed in 1545: take fyne floure and a cursey of fayre water and a dysche of swete butter and a lyttel saffron, and the yolckes of two egges and make it thynne and as tender as ye maye.
Originally this crust was filled meat but the pilgrims were forced to adapt to the new world. Blueberries, native to North America, were introduced to them by the natives and provided an exotic, sweet, yet tangy treat when paired with this Paest for Tarte.
Pekoe Gunpowder green tea was used because it is one of the stronger teas on the market and it’s flavor is a perfect pairing for the wild blueberries.
