Green Tea Chocolate Truffles

‘Matcha’ tea powder is made from the whole green tea leaf. Zen Buddhist monks in Japan began drinking Matcha as a meditational drink over 800 years ago, and it’s used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony.

Matcha’s elegant bitterness blends well with creamy white chocolate.
Lovely green treat for a relaxing weekend.
