Nestlé Uji-Kintoki Green Tea Kit Kat

I don’t know what Uji-Kintoki Green Tea is, at least when compared to just ordinary…green tea. I doubt I’ll be getting many Google referrals from it though. I assume it has something to do with the tea leaves used, but in the end this is just a Kit Kat, how complicated can it be?

Hopefully not very, it looks like it may be strong. The wrapper is a dark green colour, and so is…the bar. Yeah, a green chocolate bar. It looks so tasty…still, in the interest of this blog…

The bar actually isn’t that bad. I bit into it, and my mouth was filled with a musty, bitter green tea flavour. It didn’t taste great, but I went through it, and all of a sudden it subsided a little and became creamy. Still with the green tea taste, just not the sort of bitter green tea feeling. That made the bar much better, though it’s still a strange one.

I don’t think I’d get this one again. It wasn’t bad, but it was just a little odd and not really to my liking. Then again I don’t like green tea that much anyway. If you do like it then there’s obviously a much higher chance you’ll like this, but I’m not making any promises.

P.S. I’ve since done some research before actually publishing this post. It turns out that this was red bean, maccha (green tea) and…condensed milk flavour. Well I guess that’s how I managed to get a creamy taste, but I’ll be damned if the condensed milk doesn’t put me off a bit. Also if you don’t feel a little ill from looking at the bowl of gloop in that picture that Nestlé of Japan have actually put on the front of these packs, then you have a strong stomach, because I know I feel just a little sick from looking at that.

Being a proud Englishman I prefer a good cup of regular Tetley tea, green tea is ok but yeah…in chocolate form it is a little weird. And I haven’t found those things anywhere, so send me one before they’re completely discontinued! Or tell me where you get them from or something, I don’t want to miss out. 😦

Ah Sainsbury’s, I never go there so that’s why I wouldn’t have seen them.

And yeah, I got these off the internet, I do have things sent from time to time, but that’s pretty rare.

I like green tea normally but in a candy bar? YUCK! That is an abomination to chocolate. You have guts to try that!

I’ll see what I can do with those Match Makers, hopefully I’ll be able to stick something up in the next few days, and maybe even make use of the good quality digital camera my mum has.

And thanks Alyssa, I’m willing to give everything a try, so sometimes that does mean taking a bullet so to speak in order to stop more people from trying certain things.

[…] Pocky and green tea Nestlé Kit Kats! You can read a not-so-favorable assessment of the Kit Kats at Chocolate Review, which may be the best blog idea ever and is run by a British university […]
