  1. Warm cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in tea and let steep for 5 minutes. Strain cream through a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth; discard tea leaves. Cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, beat butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, confectioners’ sugar and baking powder in a bowl; gradually add to butter mixture just until combined. Shape dough into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F.
  4. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to an 11-inch circle. Transfer to a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom; trim edges. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar and remaining vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form. Beat mascarpone in another large bowl until smooth. Fold in whipped cream. Spread mascarpone cream over crust.
  6. Combine strawberry jelly and orange liqueur in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat. Cool completely. Gently toss strawberries and glaze in a large bowl. Arrange berries and flowers if desired on tart.
