Foodie Friday: Green Tea Croissant

Green tea croissant: classic crescent bun with matcha cream inside

It was between this or an almond croissant at the bakery. The cute matcha sprinkles won me over.

I’ve tried breaded goodies with green tea before, but not in this form. A croissant is an exquisite European delicacy. What could go wrong?

I think it is an inspired Frasian (perhaps I just made up that word = French-Asian) combo. Somehow the multiple layers of a croissant didn’t work with the cream, though. I think it has to do with the difficulty of reaching the middle—takes too much work, which hinders the taste process. There’s also a tad too much crunchiness on the edges of the bread, and the texture contrasts negatively with the green tea creaminess.

I guess I’ll just stick with the cream puff version next time!

Crazy Rich Asians!


  1. I like a chocolate croissant, especially the chocolate is strong and abundant. If not, it has the same problem you mention–too far to the middle.

  2. The title of your post made my mouth water.
    Two of my most favorite treats in one was too good to be true :)
    Too bad that you were disappointed. I’ll stick to my matcha green tea cheesecake, then. And keep the basic chocolate or almond filing for croissants.
    Like the name you gave the baked good, though :)
