with my new found love for baking with green tea, i couldn't wait to try out the flavours in green tea macarons. i'd recently made sushi cupcakes with green tea buttercream so knew i definitely wanted this for the filling. then, i kept the macaron shell recipe fairly simple with a slight hint of food colouring and speckles of finely sieved green tea. i thought it created quite a nice speckled effect, don't you think?

if you're ever looking for a place to add you your tearoom to-do list, betty's needs to go straight to the top. established in 1919, betty's really is the pinnacle of traditional tea rooms, serving the likes of afternoon tea, light lunches, lovingly made cakes and an extensive loose leaf tea and coffee selection.

if you hadn't already guessed it from my love of pistachio ice cream, overuse of green food colouring and recent new retro blender in a gorgeous shade of mint, i am quite partial to the colour green. when i saw that argos were running a colour campaign competition i thought, why not?
