Matcha Chocolate Bar Tasting
During the two years I lived in Japan, I became obsessed with the bittersweet flavor of matcha, a fine powder made from pulverized green tea leaves. I became very passionate about matcha green tea while studying tea ceremony and was always on the lookout for the best matcha-themed treats and desserts around town.
For this post I gathered together all of my favorite matcha-infused chocolate bars. Whether blended with white or dark chocolate, these chocolate bars all have something special to offer and are amongst the best I’ve ever tried.
