Yorkshire Gold, whilst pretty spectacular, doesn’t alway hit the spot. So today I’m going to share another rather wonderful tea.
The other day I found some beautiful Japanese choux pastry cakes filled with macha tea custard and decorated with gold leaf. (Basically impossible not to buy in bulk). They were such beautiful things they required a very delicate tea, so we ate them with a pot of Clearspring Japanese Genmaicha tea.
The tea is made from green tea grown in the hills around Kyoto,combined with roasted brown rice. The finished product has a lovely nutty, fresh flavour (reminicent of cobnuts) and made a rather splendid elevenses by all accounts.
PS. I absolutely adore Japanese food, so more on this to come I’m sure.
