Seven Eleven never disappoints me when it comes to their selection of traditional Japanese sweets.
Today’s review is about Warabi mochi with lots of Matcha powder. There were 5 pieces in the cup and the green color of the Matcha was very beautiful. Time to dig in!
Wow! The Warabi mochi even had Matcha powder kneaded into it! The Matcha powder consisted of Matcha green tea powder and Kinako (roasted bean powder). High quality Uji Matcha from Kyoto was used, so the Matcha was properly bitter. The Mochi was sweet, a good pairing that enhanced the bitter Matcha.
The Warabi Mochi itself was soft and difficult to lift out of the cup.
It melted in my mouth. So good!
Warabi Mochi is my favorite out of traditional Summer sweets.
If you are into Matcha, you will appreciate the astringency and bitterness of this Matcha dessert for sure.
