Nissin Confectionery's Koicha (Matcha) Candy is a Premium Matcha (Hard) candy for adults who pursue a sense of luxury, sticking to carefully selected ingredients. Individually wrapped for freshness.
Dark tea (Koicha) candy is a candy with a Rich Matcha Flavor that is made by wrapping 100% Nishio Matcha Powder in a candy that is also kneaded with Nishio Matcha. You can enjoy the the original flavor of matcha without any added seasoning or flavors.
"Tencha", which is the source of matcha, is cultivated by covering the leaves. By doing this, the theanine contained in the tea leaves will be less likely to change to catechins and will grow into a tasty tea leaf with less astringency. The harvested Tencha is made into matcha powder by a technique called stone milling. The amount of matcha that can be ground with a stone mill is only 40g per hour. This is because when ground at high speed, the frictional heat generated changes the quality of the tea ingredients. The tea leaves, which are slowly and carefully ground, become fine particles and are finished as matcha with a deep taste and a rich aroma.
There are two types of tea for the tea ceremony, "dark tea" and "light tea". Since dark tea uses more matcha than light tea, the quality of matcha becomes more important. Because quality is important, only Nishio Matcha is used, which has excellent taste, aroma, and color. As the name suggests, Nissin Confectionery's "Dark Tea (Koicha) Candy" is a luxurious gem that uses plenty of Nishio Matcha. Please enjoy and appreciate the quality.
