Do you see the link between Bavaria and Green Tea?

Classified under the "Special" category,
Green Tea Bavarian ($5.50 excluding 7% GST)
has caught my attention ever since I first heard about this place last year. Patissier is frequently highlighted in blogs and particularly forums under the best cake thread.

This creation is basically a layer of flavoured chocolate sandwiched between green tea mousse with rum soaked raisins.

There is no standard combination for Matcha cakes and so far we have come across Azuki, Fresh cream, Sweet potato and Chestnut and the effect for all are so different. Green Tea Bavarian came with chocolate. Caught me by surprise as I thought it was Azuki and this is the first Matcha cake we have that contains alcohol.

The cake contains 6 layers, namely the
matcha jelly, the matcha mousse, the chocolate with rum soaked rasins, matcha cake, matcha mousse and matcha cake. I thought it would be perfect without the chocolate as the matcha components are good as a whole. The cake is soft enough, the mousse is creamy and overall it is not sweet nor overly bitter. When the chocolate tinted with alcohol is introduced, the effect becomes like a matcha-misu.

I would say I like it and it is definitely worth a try if you are a fan of matcha. The tea taste is not overly bitter.

This is the first Matcha cake which I have eaten which has chocolate and raisins soaked in rum. Personally not a fan of Matcha cake, I found this a very extreme combination. Each element has its unique taste and none over shadow the other. Hence you may wonder what exactly you are eating. However if you eat it layer by layer, you will find that the Matcha sponge and mousse is actually quite nice, soft and smooth. Despite the extreme combination, I must say that this Matcha cake is better than most which I have tried.

Haha, I thought chocolate might be alittle extreme to go with green tea. I thought this was nice because of the green tea cake and mousse.

Maybe I should try their Green Tea chestnut and see how is the outcome...

Seen my other matcha posts? might be able to get some inspirations...
