They also make great おみやげ (souvenirs) as each region has their own unique specialty flavour.
This flavour is Matcha which is a type of Japanese green tea where the tea leaf is ground into a fine powder. The Matcha is from Uji which is a region of Kyoto famous for their green tea.
How does it taste? Matcha KitKat tastes really good and the flavour is not too strong. It’s not as sweet as your regular KitKat but sweet enough and the Matcha flavour really hits you as an aftertaste with a slightly bitter note.
We picked up this KitKat for 50 yen ($USD$0.50) which contained three bars inside.
