French Cake by Bernard Heberle: Tisane


Here’s the latest creation by my good friend, Bernard Heberle, the owner-patissier at Abondance in Hamamatsu City!
It is called “Tisane”, or herb tea infusion.

In his own words:
“Voici un gâteau au nom de ” Tisane ” et pour cause il est a base d’herbe fraîche et plus spécialement de Verveine.
La combinaison Verveine, crème, oeuf, lait et amour se marie très bien surtout en approche de la saison chaude et humide.”

“Here is a caked I called “Tisane” because it is prepared with a fresh herb base, especially Verveine.
The combination of Verveine, cream, egg, milk and love is just perfect as we approach the hot sultry season!”

  1. Bonjour Robert,
    This cake looks delicious. Just the perfect size for a delicacy. Is the base patée sablée, or maybe pâte sucrée?
    I’m in the mood for french pastry now, and I don’t have time to bake today.
