Food adventures are always fun! My sister recently returned from her travels in Japan and Hong Kong and dropped off a few things for me! Tokyo Banana and Cha no Ka were some of them. :)
TOKYO BANANA - Banana Caramel Custard Cream
So this new fad in Asia is essentially a sponge-y cake with a distinct banana flavour. When bitten into, you'll find a caramel custard filling and mixed together, I have to say, is a pretty weird combination of flavours. Nonetheless, the giraffe spots and packaging made this quite irresistible! 
CHA no KA - Langue de Chat Made With OKOICHA and White Chocolate
These green tea wafer/cookie/cracker things were DELICIOUS! With a thin layer of white chocolate between the green tea wafers, it had just the right amount of sweetness. I really enjoyed this snack! I would've definitely taken a picture of the actual thing versus the picture of it, but I ate them a while back and forgot to take a photo.

These specialty treats are made exclusively in Kyoto, Japan. OKOICHA is strong Japanese tea that uses leaves grown specifically in Uji-Shirakawa, Kyoto. 


CHA no KA was created through the collaboration of 3 experts with high artisan skills in Kyoto - Kakuji Kojima, an expert  of tea leaf production, Haruhide Morita, a tea appraiser and Yasuhiko Ezaki, a patissier. Special white chocolate is sandwiched in between 2 pieces of OKOICHA langue de chat. 


So my dare for you this week is to try a new food! :) Maybe something with giraffe spots on it or some new green tea delicacy? 

Cheers,
Jess.
