Uji near Kyoto is one of the two main tea production areas of Japan and hojicha (roasted tea) is a very Kyoto-specific way to enjoy tea: the tea leaves are roasted in porcelain pots over charcoal, giving the tea a caramel-like flavor and lowering its caffeine levels. Of course, this also makes the Kit Kat Mini Itohkyuemon Uji Hojicha a perfect snack for anyone who loves tea-flavored chocolate but doesn't want too much chemical stimulation! This uniquely tasting item from Nestle Japan's exclusive series of Japanese Kit Kat snacks is made in collaboration with Itohkyuemon, a tea shop in Uji that is a popular tourist destination for souvenirs. Great Japanese tea meets great chocolate. What more could you ask for?
