In the name of Science

Going boldly where no KitKat has gone before…

The flavour reads 治字抹茶: unknown to my dictionary, but should have something to do with green tea (I think it may be some sort of Japanese pastry, made of red bean paste and green tea, like pretty much every Japanese pastry out there).

  1. 宇治抹茶: green tea from Uji, a town in the Kansai area famous for its tea. That’d explain it?

    But yeah, KitKat does some weird stuff here. I tried this one last week or so (in the name of science of course…) and it was surprisingly good! Anything with azuki-bean-stuff makes me think twice about eating it, but you hardly taste it so not bad at all…

  2. Uji!!! That’s what it is (I badly need to add the Location Names dictionary to my local JEDict app)… I have absolutely no excuse: not only I have been to Uji, a while ago, but I even remember buying tea there, now that I think of it. In my defense, this was all more than 2 years ago, and my kanji skills weren’t exactly stellar then, but I should have figured…
    Thanks for the tip!

    Taste-wise, I must say I wasn’t impressed… Mostly sugary with a bit of a green tea and bean paste aftertaste… The green-tea kitkat was better in the same category… Otherwise, I think they should stick with the fruit flavours…
