Itohkyuemon releases new Uji Matcha Sakura Nama Chocolate!

21.February.2019 | FOOD

Itohkyuemon, a well-established Japanese green tea store based in Uji, Kyoto, started selling the new “Uji Matcha Sakura Nama Chocolate” (宇治抹茶さくら生チョコレート) from 15th February 2019.

“Uji Matcha Nama Chocolate” (宇治抹茶生チョコレート) is the most popular item on Itohkyuemon’s online shop. Using this as a base, a limited spring edition “sakura” flavour was created. A spring-like pink powder is sprinkled over the Uji matcha chocolate. After the flowery flavour of sakura spreads through your mouth, you will be struck with a milky flavour along with a moderate salty touch. This is when the flavour of matcha grows and fills your mouth. This exquisite flavour is obtained from real cherry blossom flowers and leaves. The natural powder gives the powder its vivid coloursー nothing is added to enhance its colour. Like flower petals scattered on a moss garden, the surface of the chocolates are decorated with a faint pink dusting.

 

The packaging has a wonderful texture and is decorated with a woven cherry blossom pattern set on pink Japanese-style paper. This compliments the green-yellow spring-themed colours. Each chocolate package is wrapped individually by hand. The box even comes with small wooden utensils so you can open the package and enjoy these tasty chocolates straight away.
