Green tea, white chocolate & clementine Tiramisu

I don’t know why, but every time I cook up something that has Matcha in it, people talk! Well, I kind of get it, the colour can be pretty intense, but I love the vibes it gives this dessert.

If this is your first Tiramisu, I’d like to insist on the cookie dunking method: it’s a very quick dunk. If you wait too much, they will get soagy and will crumble. A quick dunk and then you lay them out in the bowl.
