If there is one thing I certainly won’t miss about Japan it’s Matcha. It’s basically powdered green tea and it’s used to flavour almost everything here. It’s more ubiquitous than chocolate.
I personally can’t stand it. In its pure powdered form it’s dry and bitter. I had some on a green tea pudding a week ago in Kyoto and had to get a chocolate thick shake just to get the horrid taste out of my mouth
Here is the pudding. Looks nice, tastes foul. The actual green tea pudding under the powder wasn’t too bad but the powder, omfg ick.
The supermarket shelf from hell
I’m not sure all the sugar in the world could improve this ghastly creation.
