Matcha tea and white chocolate madeleines

Matcha tea is a Japanese tea that looks like green powder. It has lots of wonderful health benefits such as giving great energy boost, 137 times the level of antioxidants than regular green tea and lots of other benefits. Its use in patisserie is quite a recent thing and has become a bit of a trend a few years ago. I love the green colour it gives and it matches really well with raspberries and white chocolate among other things.
