The taste which you could only find in Kyoto

Kyogashidokoro Kongetsu ~ Hime Senju Senbei (Organic Matcha)

Malebranche ~ Chanoka

The thick tea which used in "Chanoka" is original thick tea. Thus, it has the unique scent which is only contained by thick tea.

It is similar to the white chocolate cookie of the classic souvenir which is popular and purchased by many people who travel to Hokkaido, however for this, it is in matcha flavor. It is a perfect flavor and so tasty. It is also perfect to be served with tea or coffee.
