Bake Pie shell according to package until golden brown, set aside to cool completely.
Wash all fruits and set aside. Cut strawberries and kiwis into slices.
Line a ¼ sheet roll pan with plastic wrap, be sure to have extra hanging over the shorter sides of the pan at least 6 inches on top and bottom sides.
Pastry cream can be made 1 day ahead:-
In a heavy bottom saucepan add milk and first sugar and scald, do not boil (when a thin milk film forms on top it is ready). In a bowl whisk together egg yolks, whole eggs, cornstarch, ground edible organic green tea leaves and second sugar then whisk in some of the warm milk mixture (whisk as you add the milk or it will be lump – get someone to help you if necessary). Add the mixture from the bowl back to the pot with the remaining milk and return to the stove top, keep cooking until it thickens like custard.
Remove from heat add butter and vanilla extract and keep mixing. Immediately turn out onto baking sheet lined with plastic wrap, spread evenly on pan then fold over one side of plastic all the way then other end over to overlap, fold in longer sides and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours before assembling tart.
Assemble tart – Remove pastry cream from plastic and place in bowl whisk slightly (should be custard like not watery) and scoop into baked pie shell. Top outer edge by over lapping strawberries slices on each other, the make a second row this time overlapping the kiwi slices, the third row layered with raspberries and final row with blueberries.
Warm up 4 Tablespoon peach marmalade and spread on top of fruits.
