For those of you who follow my blog, you’ll be aware of my struggle with green tea desserts. The matcha powder used can taste very earthy and grassy when used too heavily. Blown over from Japan, matcha desserts are abundant here in China.
Recently I picked up a bar of green tea chocolate by Dove. The tea was mixed with white chocolate, which I think works better for the matcha than a milk or dark chocolate would. The grassy taste was there, albeit below the surface.
I didn’t mind it this time. Maybe I’m getting used to it. At any rate, it’s fun to see a green colored chocolate bar. It kind of messes with your senses a bit. There were some pieces of cookie mixed in with the chocolate, giving a nice crunchy texture every other bite or so.
