Snapshot/dessert: matcha green tea and bear donuts at MR. DONUT

My favorite is still the almond pon de ring, but the bear donuts are so cute, I might have to try them eventually. Their new thing these days is the green tea matcha donuts. I also love their little giveaways that you can collect stickers to earn, but usually I can't buy enough donuts to fill up a card!

I just had a matcha bear donut two days ago! I got it from Mister Donut at 頂溪站 and I think it was pretty good. Toasting it in the toaster oven to warm it up a it made it super yummy! The filling is a wonderful creamy, sweet cross between whip and frosting. I do not like frosting, but the filling was good! I only wish it'd been matcha flavored

Since I very rarely get to eat donuts (this was my first donut in over a year I think), I cannot say if it was better or worse than other brands ^^;

I never cared for donuts but when I first went to Taipei I thought, "Wow. These donuts look so much better than the donuts I've seen in the USofA."

I'll try out this place!

kirbie: yeah, cuteness always sells!

黃愛玲: though the donuts in the states are not as cute, they often taste better!

Matcha Green Tea said...

Many folks wonder what Matcha Green Tea tastes like. It is an often misunderstood, highly complex, alluring flavor. Chlorophyll together with amino acids supply Matcha with its distinctive rich taste. It has an initial astringent, vegetal taste which then gives way to a lingering sweetness. When Matcha is whisked with water in the traditional style of Japan, it is actually a very full-bodied green tea. The high intensity of your first Matcha experience can be compared to the first time you red wine or dark chocolate. When Matcha is used as in ingredient in baking, cooking, or beverages, the taste will become more subtle. It can add the unique flavor, (and generally the color), of green tea to a variety of creations such as ice cream, cupcakes, smoothies, a latte, or various different sauces.
