I think I have seen green tea ones somewhere - maybe Fortnum and Mason? Reckon that sounds lovely!

The one in the picture is apricot by the way. I've previously made mint chocolate (green shell, brown filling), orange chocolate (orange shell, brown filling), peppermint (blue), black current (purple). Oh, and chocolate, obviously, but that goes without saying grin

I have finally got the knack of macarons and would like to make up an assortment of flavours and colours for an upcoming family event. Does anyone have any suggestions for flavours for the following colours?
