For many of us, the only way we survive the long, cold winters is with the help of some tea (okay, a lot of tea). But thanks to Bokksu, tea doesn’t just have to come in the form of a comforting winter drink, because now you can enjoy it in your snacks, too! Take a look at these decadent tea-flavored Japanese snacks, available on the Bokksu Boutique now, and stock up your pantry before the season is over.
Waffles aren’t just for breakfast anymore, thanks to the Kyoto Matcha Waffle Sandwich from Maeda Seika! Each snack contains two golden, crispy waffles cookies separated by a layer of smooth white chocolate and matcha cream made with matcha from Kyoto. The white chocolate is included to make sure the bitterness of the matcha doesn’t overpower the rest of the cookie, and trust us when we say – it does a pretty darn good job.
You’re probably going to need a snack pairing for your tea this winter, and we have just the thing. Made in Nara, these French-inspired Nara Wa Langue De Chat Matcha cookies are made with a buttery cookie outside and earthy matcha filling that will taste great with any of your favorite teas or coffees.
Matcha Chocolate Daifuku Mochi We couldn’t make a list of Japanese sweets without including the best snack of all: mochi! The Matcha Chocolate Daifuku Mochi from Seiki is a type of daifuku, or stuffed mochi, made by kneading matcha powder into the mochi dough, and wrapped in a delectable white chocolate cream filling. Is your mouth watering yet, because mine is! The only thing better than cozying up with tea this winter is pairing your tea with a tea-flavored snack. Or, if you’re looking for a larger selection of Japanese snacks, don’t forget to check out the Bokksu Boutique for all your sweet, savory, or senbei needs!
