【Green Tea × Pastry】Green Tea French Toast

There are many recipes to use black tea leaves themselves into pastries, but I’ve hardly found those with green tea leaves. Why? The aroma of green tea leaves is so sensitive and it is difficult to deal with when making baked pastry. However, when using in a right way, it provide sensitive, elegant, graceful, but unfaltering aroma. It is like the expression of Japanese women, “Yamato-Nadeshiko”!
