There's the Vert Provence which has a frangipane centre flavoured with Vert Provence Green Tea and Matcha Green Tea or the black-hued cake that's infused with their Marco Polo Sublime black tea and filled with a frangipane with blueberries and blackberries. They'll be available to pick up (or pre-order) in-store all month.
