I think this will mark my final thoughts on green tea, as I have tried a handful of different matcha desserts, and have written just as many blog entries about it. It was unusual at first bite, but it has steadily become normal, and I’m even starting to like it.
Recently I bought a green tea and chocolate cookie that turned out to be a sandwich of two matcha cookies with white chocolate in the middle. The cookies were super soft and crumbly with just a hint of the green tea, and the white chocolate gave it that added bit of sweetness. There was enough matcha powder used to let you taste the tea, but not too much so that it tastes grassy. This was by far the best green tea item I’ve yet tried.
