The fat-free, low calorie and organic nature of the frozen yoghurt is to be commended but I really don't see the point in offering a flavour that is so slight as to be virtually undetectable. I thought this was just a Frae issue but I have been informed by my friend Miss O that it's much the same story in Snog and in various places she's tried in the States. Come on frozen yoghurt companies; the health benefits of green tea are all very well but let us taste some of that good stuff too!

Where's the Green Tea?
If you're in London, I'm sure the latest craze for frozen yoghurt hasn't passed you by (and if you're in the States you're probably thinking "latest craze??"). I wasn't overly fussed about it having had a couple of fairly disappointing tubs but then I discovered that Frae offered a green tea flavour and I hot-footed (or hot-wheeled) it up to Islington to try some. My anticipation grew as I saw that one of the toppings on offer was mochi - the pounded rice sweets I had so enjoyed in Japan. I also added some mango and was ready to go. Well, it was another disappointment I'm afraid. Sure the mango was deliciously ripe, and the mochi were nice but where was the green tea in the frozen yoghurt? At first I thought I'd been served the wrong flavour but on comparison with Coffee Boy's I could taste that it was a bit different but I'd have been hard-pressed to tell you what the flavour I was eating was.
