Unless you’re a pepper taster who can’t vape TFA White Chocolate, there was nothing wrong with @ExclusiveGirl’s Green Tea Kit Kat recipe from October 2016. It was a great idea, well-crafted from the best ingredients at the time. But at the time was more than two years ago. We’ve got better tools for this job now. FE Green Tea is better than TFA (grass) or FA (ass) but it’s still too floral, thankfully we now have FLV Eisai Tea, which tastes much closer to the matcha flavoring in those Green Tea Kit Kats. WF Crispy Wafer also better job than CAP Sugar Cookie in getting that crispy inside. I’ve replaced TFA White Chocolate with a combination of FLV and FW White Chocolates – no more black pepper and a great combination of top and mid-range notes that I'm again stealing from @jbird – and added some sweetness. Earlier versions were missing some creaminess, so I carried over one ingredient from the original recipe, CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream, which fills a small gap in the white chocolate duo.
🏷️ Soft Baked Golden Cookies topped with Matcha Green Tea Cream and Fresh Berries.
This recipe is inspired by the painting “Starry Night over the Rhone” by Vincent van Gogh. I was moved by Van Gogh’s bold use of contrasting color (vibrant blues, buttery yellows, golds, and greens), rich texture, and expressive style. I wanted to pay homage to Van Gogh by creating a recipe that expressed the same qualities.
Top: Matcha Cream, Esai Tea, and Jade Tea combine to create a velvety soft, smooth, and milky matcha green tea cream; with notes of a mild culinary grade matcha, savory black tea, and lightly green and crisp green tea.
Sandwiched inside this fragrant cream are mild notes of freshly picked juicy bilberries. The amalgamation of Bilberry, Blueberry Extra (SL) (CAP) and Blueberry Extra (TPA) makes for a sweet, tart, and natural Bilberry flavor.
Base: Married into the cream, sits a nutty golden cookie. Almond Cookie, Beer Nuts, and Biscuit were combined to make this cookie base. The subtle notes of almond, walnut, and dry roasted peanuts also help to crisp up the edges of the soft baked cookie. Not only does the cookie add texture to the overall recipe, it’s a nice nutty and buttery contrast to the brighter teas and juicy bilberries.
This is an interesting recipe that uses an aromatic and fragrant tea as the base, with the Alpine Strawberry as the top note, finished off with a light starchy, and slightly creamy sweet rice. It's really odd, but damn tasty.
Created for Week 5 of the Mixin Vixens Youtube show.
I don't think I really want to play with this flavor any more. It was sort of a test recipe to see how the flavors work together. It was surprisingly good.
The Eisai tea has a light floral herbal tea flavor that creates the base of the recipe.
The Red Cherry from Molinberry is to me a toned down version of FLV's discontinued Bing Cherry. In fact during the episode I compare the two out of the bottle and they certain smell very similar. Juicy Strawberry and Raspberry are only supporting flavors adding to the red notes of the overall flavor.
