Heat the infused cream. Add the softened gelatin and mix.
Pour over the white chocolate and mix until the chocolate is completely melted. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours.
Once the ganache has completely cooled, beat it with a mixer until it has a firm enough consistency (to be poached). Use immediately.
In a large saucepan, combine the tea and mineral water. Let infuse cold at room temperature for 24 hours.
At the end of this period, remove the tea leaves. Correct the water weight if necessary.
Add the sugar and the exhausted vanilla pods as well as the lemon juice. To heat.
Meanwhile, peel the pears and remove the center (being careful not to damage them).
Once the sugar has melted, plunge the pears into the simmering syrup until they are tender (plunge the blade of a knife into a pear to check doneness).
Leave to drain on the grill.
On the pear tart bases, spread a little ganache mounted to the height of the tartlet. With a pocket, garnish the empty cavity of the pear with this ganache. Place a poached pear in the center of the tart. Ladle the rest of the ganache mounted around the pear.
With a brush, carefully spread a little syrup on the pears to give them a shiny appearance.
