The last Japanese Kit Kat for a while again. This is another green tea variety, Koshian Maccha this time. Again I’m not sure what the difference is between this and ordinary green tea, so if someone wants to fill me in there then I’d be delighted, but I’m lead to believe that it has red bean in this as well. I reviewed the red (azuki) bean Kit Kat a while ago, and was impressed with its sweet, nutty flavour. So with the green tea flavour as well, I’m looking forward to this.
The pack is a lighter green than yesterday’s, which bodes well as far as I’m concerned. The bar is also a lighter green, and instead of smelling like tea, it just smells…sweet. There isn’t much aroma to it other than a very sweet smell.
The taste is sadly very plain as well. It’s hard to make out anything at all, I think there’s a little green tea there, but that’s only because it said so on the pack, so I’m really looking for it. Other than that, all I get is a sweet, creamy chocolate flavour coming through. It’s nice, just not what I was expecting.
A little disappointing in the end, there isn’t much to this bar. It’s a cross between the chestnut and the Uji-Kintoko green tea bars, but both do what they set out do better.
Note: These have been discontinued so if you want them then get them in ASAP. I’ve seen them around eBay but they’ll only last so long.
