Crème brûlée + Sahara Tea = A Giveaway

July 8, 2014

Something came out this good…

Coconut crème brûlée

You now know that I am crazy about crèmes brûlées, crèmes brûlées revisited or even something close enough.

Why would you want to resist breaking this topping to make it through a creamy vanilla or chocolate spoonful? WHY?

Listen to me…  I discovered Sahara Tea through a friend, she offered me some teas.   Right away, 100 Mysteries attracted me.  The coconut prevails but aroma of this mix will seduce you.  It seduced me.  Although I drink a lot of coffee, this one would totally make a fair trade in the morning!

Some Sunday, as I was gathering my ingredients to make a crème brûlée, I opened the cupboard to reach for the sugar and saw the Sahara Tea box… Shall I dare?  Shall do I and give it a try?

Thank god I did!  I used a tea bag in the making of the recipe and it added a great flavor to eat.  A hint of coconut and a nutty taste is an amazing upgrade to a crème brûlée.  Topped with fresh grated coconut! WOOOW!  Yes, that’s right!

I am so exited of this partnership with Sahara Tea and hopefully a lot of you are going to know them!

Sahara Tea is dedicated to deliver the best aromas, taste and health benefits.  They offer a wide variety of products: Wellness, organic, classic, tisane or even iced tea.
They also offer their own teaware such are pincer or infuser.  I really encourage you to go and visit their page at www.saharatea.ca and say hi to Reena, the very sweet owner.

Before we get to the super exiting part, let me share my recipe with you!  It is very similar to the original one with 2 small extra steps.

Coconut Crème brûlée

Yield: 6 ramekins

Ingredients

  • - 250ml of the 35% cream
  • - 250ml of milk
  • - 5 egg yolks

  • - 1/4 of a cup of freshly grated coconut

Instructions

  3. - Add the egg yolks and the sugar that you would have previously beaten together.
  4. - Stir well.
  5. - Take a baking sheet that has little borders, place your ramequins filled up with the preparation.
  6. - Bake bain-marie (add water on the baking sheet so the ramequins are baking in water) - sorry should have taken a picture too.
  7. - Bake for 25-30 minutes at 375F.
  8. - Allow to cool down and keep refrigerate for 2 hours.
  9. - Before you jump on it and eat it... Sprinkle with some sugar on top of the crème and with a baking torch, caramelize it.

  1. I have yet to make creme brulee but it is certainly one of my favorite desserts when I go out for dinner!! I love your idea of brewing up some tea to use in the creme brulee to add in more flavour! Bravo!

  2. I’ve always been a wee bit intimidated by making creme brulee. But I’m well versed in drinking lots of tea, so… 😉

  3. Yum, a dessert with two of my favorite things! While I do enjoy creme brulee, I’ve never gotten too creative with it, just sticking to the tried and true recipe. I’m now very tempted to give this a try.

  4. I already brushed my teeth but this post makes me want to jump unto my bike (while wearing PAJAMAS) and run to the store to get the ingredients for this deliciousness!

  5. You put my two loves in one article, Creme Brulee and Tea! I’m a secret tea granny at heart 😉 My grandma used to make me creme brulee all the time but I have never mastered the recipe, I’m going to give yours a try, thanks so much for posting!

  6. These look delicious. I would love to try and make them. Thanks for having such an awesome giveaway!
