Go green



Matcha (powdered green tea) is famous for its use in tea ceremonies and is the strongest tasting green tea because you drink the actual tea leaves. It’s also one of the most popular flavours of ice-cream, cookies, milkshakes and McFlurries in Japan, right up there with strawberry and chocolate. This new Crunky flavour is Matcha Shake. It says on the box that it uses green tea leaves harvested in 2009. The actual chocolate tastes very bitter and strong! It tastes like it must be healthy (matcha contains lots of antioxidants coz it includes the whole tea leaf).

Also, matcha chocolate chip cookies!!
