Nanaya, a producer of confections made using matcha from Shizuoka, is releasing a new line of blue chocolates. They will began rolling out at the Fujieda, Shizuoka, Aoyama and Kyoto Sanjo branches on May 9.
Blue chocolate is not something you see everyday. Nanaya make this melt-in-the-mouth chocolate by using the same original methods they developed to make white chocolate. It is more reminiscent of hard candy than the smooth velvety chocolate served in summer. It has a gentle sweetness brought about by the light brown sugar which is delicious until the last bite. It’s also seasoned with salt and pepper for accent and deeper flavours. The chocolate also uses butterfly pea which is popular in herbal teas in Thailand.
To further bring out the unique qualities of the herb tea, natural salt and three types of pepper are used: red, white and black. This adds a spicy kick to the sweetness of the chocolate. The chocolate is to be kept cool in the refrigerator and best enjoyed after leaving to come to room temperature before eating.
Try this exotic blue chocolate yourself this spring.
Available: At the Fujieda, Shizuoka, Aoyama, Kyoto Sanjo and Makinohara branches of Nanaya.
*Releasing at the Tea Museum in Shizuoka and online on May 12, 2019.
