Green Tea Panna Cotta

Green Tea Panna Cotta

Having traveled a lot during my life, I’ve been to 40 countries at last count, I’ve been wanting to try my hand at baking desserts from other cultures and making friends with bloggers from other countries. I already have a lot of experience with American and British desserts and bloggers but I wanted to find people from other countries.

 After a lot of researching and thought I chose Daisy from Never to Sweet. I love her website. She’s Australian born Chinese and her website showcases some fun Australian baking along with a lot of mouth watering restaurant and afternoon tea pictures from her travels.

After reading about her visit to Sin Mei for an entirely Green Tea afternoon tea in Hong Kong I was intrigued to try my hand with this flavor. I made a green tea loaf before but it was only lightly flavored. I went all in and re created the green tea panna cotta.

My dad took us on an amazing vacation to Australia when I was a teenager and on that same vacation we spent 24 hours on a layover in Hong Kong. I do have a deep love for Tim Tams but we didn’t get to sample much cuisine while in Hong Kong.

If you like green tea you will love this panna cotta. The matcha makes the flavor very strong. I added some fresh berries on top to help contrast the flavor. The recipe makes two small portions which is enough since it has such a strong flavor. If you’re not used to matcha start with a small amount of powder until you get acquired with the taste (you will probably love it or hate it!).

  1. This is a great idea! I admit, I’m fond of Irish bakers, as they’re great for cooking Beardy Fiance’s favourites – probably my favourite blogger is Tash @ The Velvet Moon Baker – real Irish mammy classics with a modern twist!

  2. Thanks so much for taking part in this Kelly 😀 It was great fun to bake your cookies, hope you liked my post about you :)
