Jolly good

Royal Milk Tea is a ready-made milky tea drink that’s so popular in Japan. It tastes like tea with milk but it’s very sweet and a bit spicy, like chai. I loved buying it chilled in bottles from vending machines. When my friend Asha came to Japan she developed such an addiction to it that she ended up taking a few 2-litre bottles home with her.

I love the British theme of this KitKat, and the little Royal Guards marching along the pack.

And around the back!

Union Jack colours. The stationery in the background is Cath Kidston.

The actual KitKat is milk tea white chocolate and milk tea filling. The flavour is very subtle.

Thank you James for sending this to me from Japan!!

Here’s Royal Milk Tea in a winter vending machine (all the drinks are heated). Royal Milk Tea is also a popular flavour in Japan for Haagen-Dazs ice-cream!

    I love milk tea, I used to ask my ex-bf in San Diego to send them to me in the mail. Since he had some big Japanese markets around him. And I was often drinking the heated version this winter hehe^^

    I brought some of those milk tea kit kats back, so now I’m really exciting to try them!
