Someone in my Japanese class bought those green tea Kit Kat bars, and since I'm a Vegan I didn't eat it, but I took one anyway and gave it to my dad! When he opened it up, it had a strong smell of matcha (I love that smell- I have a one pound bag of matcha powder which I used to make green tea cupcakes!) Anyway my dad said it was really good! So you should try it Ditto San! I'm sure you'd like it!

I guess I need to try them then. I'm assuming they had milk in them which is why you couldn't eat one, right?

わたしはほうじキットカットをたべてみました。ちょっとまずいでしたおもいます。しかし、もしかして Ichibanさんはすき,そのキットカットは。
Anyone, please feel free to correct my Japanese because I'm really not sure if that last part conveys what I'm trying to say.

I never had green tea follies or green tea kit kats since I am vegan. But when I was little some of the Asian kids at school brought Pocky and that was the first time I tried Pocky! Do you guys like Pocky? I'm amazed at all the flavors of it that I see when I go to the Japanese supermarket: like they have green tea flavor and I think I saw tomato flavor too!

If there are any tea drinkers here, have any of you ever tried putting a teaspoon of matcha power in your cup as opposed to teabags?

We don't get all the different kinds of Pocky here, but I am also amazed at all the different kinds I've heard about. And yes, I like them. :D

I like both coffee and tea. The matcha I have isn't ground but is delicious.

僕はお茶余り飲まないけど、飲むの時には中国人の方法で茶葉を直接にお湯に淹れる事にしている。

Follies????? What's that?
Pocky is yummy!
I don't drink tea either.

For all the tea drinkers here: What is your favorite flavor of tea? Mine is Genmaicha! I looked it up once and apparently in the past it was a "peasant tea" since the rice was used as filler But I still find it as tasty! I also like roasted green tea! (Houjicha)

I drink quite a few different kinds of tea. I wouldn't say I have a favorite, though a white tea I picked up recently is delicious.

Oh I never had white tea before! Can you describe how it is like Ditto-san? Compared with Green tea and Oolong tea, how is it? I must say that I prefer tea straight from China or Japan because I am a member of Ikea family so I can get free tea there which is awesome! Anyway, every time I go I get that black Lipton tea but I feel like that it's not as strong as the Oolong tea I get from the Chinese supermarket. To me, Lipton tastes "Weak". Do you guys agree/ Is there any difference between black and oolong tea?

僕は専門家じゃないけど、白茶を飲んだことある。味はちょっと甘くて薄くて、爽やかと思う。好きだ。

Umeshu lovers? I managed to grab some really good umeshu last time I was at Narita.



Choya Umeshu, Royal Honey flavor. This umeshu is made, understandably enough, with a touch of honey and royal jelly, and it tastes heavenly. I enjoy it chilled, on the rocks.

I first had this at a Japan culture festival, and according to my friends who checked... you gotta rely on an importer since it's hard to find outside Japan, or pick it up while you're in Japan itself. It's $25 a bottle (or more accurately, 3000 yen per bottle) at the Duty Free shops in Narita, compared to the $40 they were telling me it took to buy it outside Japan.
