Japanese Kit Kat – Green Tea

Posted in Lifestyle

Hello!  I know I say this all the time, but I  need to start making a dent in my OyatsuBoxes – my hoard is out of control!  One item that I dived on pretty much straight away upon arrival into my life was the bag of Japanese Kit Kat – Green Tea.

I’ve heard so many things about Japanese Kit Kats; I’m a little embarrassed that it has taken me so long to try one!  I will blame it on the many varieties to choose from coupled with the fact that I am terribly indecisive in general day to day life.

Inside the bag there were 12 individually wrapped miniature Kit Kats.  They are so cute and small!

My little, uncultured self just cannot seem to grasp the idea of a green Kit Kat – I know, I know, feel free to laugh!  Every time I have unwrapped one, I’m still surprised at the sight.  Even though the colour is taking me a while to get used to, it’s still a typical Kit Kat; a wafer biscuit covered in chocolate.

The Japanese Kit Kat – Green Tea is made with white chocolate mixed with matcha.   Matcha, put simply, is green tea.  Matcha is made from the green tea leaf being ground into a fine powder.   Matcha can be enjoyed on its own (usually as tea) or mixed with anything from juices, ice cream and chocolate to name a few (and I mean a few! I could be here all day…).

I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Japanese Kit Kat – Green Tea, but any worries or concerns that I may have had slipped away once I began munching on these little delights. Oh my!  The white chocolate is melt-in-the-mouth creamy with a sweet taste and the matcha adds a very subtle taste. I personally think the matcha helps to stop the white chocolate being overly sickly. I love the taste of these so much, I’d buy a solid bar of the matcha chocolate alone.  Could someone make that happen? The wafer biscuit is surprisingly light, but it still adds an enjoyable crunch.  I’m glad the wafer biscuit is light as I feel it places more emphasis on the chocolate taste.

I’m happy that my first experience with a Japanese Kit Kat was an enjoyable one.   I would buy the Green Tea variety again; I’m already trying to justify a sneaky purchase.  I know that I should probably go for a strange taste for my next Kit Kat adventure… but at the same time the strawberry flavoured ones are calling my name!

 Have you ever tried a Japanese Kit Kat before?

    These sound lovely :D I’ve seen them online before somewhere but never tried them. We have a Japanese & Korean shop here in Cardiff and they *might* sell them, I’ll have to pop in there to have a look, I could do with stocking up on my Japanese food anyway :D

    It makes me so sad that Kit Kats are from Yorkshire but we don’t get all the good ones – doesn’t really seem fair! (Though I’m glad we get the peanut butter chunky ones – my favourite!)

    The thought of eating a green Kit Kat would freak me out a bit, but I’ll definitely pick one up if I ever see one!
