Seven kinds of maccha chocolate where you can choose the strength of the maccha
This series of chocolate has the flavor of cocoa butter and an “adult-tasteing” bitterness. You can enjoy the quality flavor and the lingering gentle aftertaste since the slightly coarse texture accents the flavor of the ingredients.

The products do not use any aroma chemicals nor additives, something which is the same with the tablet. This renewed maccha chocolate using milk produced in Shizuoka Prefecture has 7 degrees of strength and will be served in an originally designed cup. In accordance with the renewal, they will sell new flavors including gyokuro (high-quality green tea), genmaicha (roasted rice tea), and Japanese black tea and milk.

The taste of the maccha chocolate gets thicker from No.1 to NO.7 and the same has been done for the hojicha (roasted green tea) flavor. They say No.7 is probably the strongest maccha chocolate in the world (under survey). For those of you who want to eat something special, you should order this unique chocolate.
