  • Mix white chocolate, 3 tablespoons mint water, and matcha on top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula until smooth, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow white chocolate mixture to cool to room temperature.

  • Beat cream in a bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold into white chocolate mixture.

  • Whisk egg whites in a large bowl until soft peaks form; fold into white chocolate mixture using a rubber spatula. Divide mousse among 6 dessert cups and chill until set, at least 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

Use 100% matcha for its antioxidant benefits.

Mint is optional, but acts as a nice counter-balance to the green tea.
