Green Tea Kit-Kat at Narita Airport

宇治抹茶キットキャット

Narita Airport is not the most modern of airports anymore, but it lacks little in the way of conveniences for the international traveler.

Seen at a Narita Airport drug store-cum-souvenir shop was this stand of Uji Maccha Kit-Kats. Maccha is a rich, thick form of green tea with the strongest flavor of any variety. And Uji is Japan's green tea capital: a town near Kyoto that has been supplying the old capital with tea for hundreds of years.

This "Japan Exclusive," as it was labeled, is aimed at those who want something quintessentially Japanese as a twist on top of that familiar chocolatey sweetness.

They were giving out samples, and, sure enough, a vague hint of traditional Japan somehow made it through the sugary, biscuity crunch.
