A friend gave me this Japanese souvenir. It’s a curry made with matcha!
This product is made by Itohkyuemon, a company that sells tea and sweets made with tea.
By the way, I love Japanese curry.
I prepare it at home at least once a month.
Let’s see if this one is tasty or not.
The curry comes inside a sealed bag, and it is almost in liquid form. Kind of like a paste.
This bag can be heated in the microwave or in boiling water. I decided to boil it.
I also prepared some vegetables and Japanese rice in order to enjoy with the matcha curry.
Amazingly, once I opened the bag I noticed that it had pieces of carrot, potatoes, and pork inside.
I thought that it only contained the curry sauce.
The green color isn’t too appealing at first.
I’ll give it a try now.
The sauce is not as spicy as I expected, but it does taste like a real curry.
The matcha flavor is noticeable, it has just the right amount of bitterness.
Now that I think of it, the matcha is balanced very well in this curry.
You can even feel the freshness of the matcha in the throat.
It was much better than I expected.
I still prefer the normal Japanese curry, but I wouldn’t mind buying another matcha curry in the future.
However, this product isn’t normally available outside Japan.
