We're so excited about the launch of our new premium grade matcha powder that we decided to celebrate with this Dark Chocolate Matcha Celebration Tart. We are so love in love with this recipe. Firstly it combines the complementing flavours and benefits of matcha and dark chocolate, which makes this recipe super tasty. And secondly, this tart is sooooooooooooooo easy to make!!! Did we mention that it's also gluten free, dairy free (depending on your chocolate) and nut free?! So definitely whip this up for your next special event.
