Be weary of anything with 18 herbal extracts14 September, 2010 by Chad
I enjoy Matcha flavored stuff but the only such candies here sell at a premium. Found these green tea lozenges selling cheaply over at the local Mediya supermarket called Ryokucha Nodoame. Something that could taste nice and still be good for you?
Of course, that wasn’t the case. Each drop was literally concentrated with herbs. Not in a good way like Pei Pa Koa but more like what your Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor would prescribe as a last resort.
Perhaps the only thing that could had made it worse, is if they had used Sencha. The title was a little ambiguous. Thankfully, the candy used Gyokuro instead. Which was sort of somewhere between Sencha and Matcha. Still, you can barely make out any flavor beneath all the medicinal taste.
Been giving these away slowly one by one. So far haven’t found anyone who wanted seconds.
