In a special collaboration with Japanese YouTuber Chocolate Cacao, D:matcha Kyoto's beloved financier takes on a spin in the form of Matcha Tigre Financiers!
Using only premium ingredients, this perfect treat was made entirely with Wazuka-grown tea and produced in Wazuka Town. Two matcha tigre variations were specially created for this project: one with a matcha chocolate coating and one without.
Tigre is a round baked confectionery that translates to "tiger" in French. Chocolate chips bits are kneaded into the dough so the pastry takes on the form of tiger stripes. The moist texture and luxurious aroma of burnt butter is then paired with a centre filling of matcha chocolate. Our chocolate is made in-house and carefully tempered to perfection.
To create the deep luxurious texture, in addition to d:matcha chocolate chips, we also added adzuki beans and honey. This taste is bound together by almond powder and our premium matcha that was harvested during the first flush of the year.
The finishing touch comes in the form of the centre marble pattern that was hand-drawn with matcha chocolate. Each tigre is not only pleasing but look at but each bite is also bound to hit your sweet spot.
