Green Tea Muffins (綠茶豆蓉鬆餅)

Green tea and red bean are the perfect match.  The combination creates a subtle flavour when the sweetness of the bean paste blend in with the plain tea flavour making it so special, so Japanese.  If you like green tea, you would like this muffins.  Thinking of green tea, make me think of the Japanese people suffering from the earthquake and tsunami.  Let's hope the country recover very soon, people get back to their life and safe for us to visit again.
