Matcha Green Tea KitKat

Just tried a new version of Matcha KitKat called オトナの甘さ Matcha KitKat. This is a new series of KitKat made for adults with a less sweet flavour. オトナの甘さ means Adult Sweetness. A KitKat geared towards adults! KitKat is really popular in Japan and they are always coming out with new seasonal varieties.

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.

  6. I'm obsessed with these! I pretty much buy them every time I go grocery shopping. I also tried red bean flavour a little while ago, which was pretty tasty too.

  7. I just tried this very same KitKat flavour today! I definitely liked the level of sweetness but I felt like the matcha flavour was too subtle! Still yummy though, and a nice change from the regular KitKat flavours we get here in Australia. :)

    1. Thanks Ladybird, Yes, agree with you there, It is a subtle flavour and the matcha flavour hits you more as an aftertaste. Still really enjoyed it and would have it many times again. Not sure if this one is in Australia :)

  9. These showed up in our local JA in Okinawa a few months ago. Like regular kitkats they're even better if you freeze them. Way too addictive though.

    1. Thank you Quackaa, It is my favourite KitKat and we are lucky that they are still around in Japan. I believe you can buy them online through sites like Amazon
