I have to thank Suvi Kesäläinen at Suvi Sur La Vif for the inspiration for this dish. She is an incredible blogger whose work you must check out--even though it is in Finnish--if only for the photos. Recently she posted a beautiful breakfast recipe that called for chai tea poached pears which I have adjusted to jasmine tea, my very favorite. —Melissa Leighty
