I was a bit taken aback by this product at first. Based on the description, I expected something, well, somewhat chocolatey. But chocolate is definitely not the word I'd use to describe what these are. When I tried eating them with the word chocolate in my mind, they were just strange, but when I started thinking of them as tea, they made a lot more sense. They're mostly a green tea that's been padded with enough waxy filler to hold it together then pressed into bars. They're quite unlike anything I've ever had.

They're creamy and milky and more than anything else, tea-like. They're sweet and vegetal with a bitterness in the aftertaste caused by the pieces of green tea that stick around in your mouth long after the rest of the bar dissolves. I definitely can't eat more than one of these squares at a time, and I wouldn't want to eat them often, but I enjoy that one square quite a bit. Really, only wanting these in moderation is probably one of the upsides.

The biggest downside for me is the actual tea leaves. In a way, I appreciate them since they add a great flavour. And I certainly don't object to eating tea leaves. I have done it on several occasions, but all those times the leaves had already been steeped, so they were soft and slid down the throat easily. These leaves are small enough so they aren't too bad, but occasionally I found myself having the urge to spit a few crunchy bits out. So it's not that I don't want the leaves; it's just that I don't love their texture.

Overall, though, these are definitely a unique and interesting creation. I'm glad I got a chance to try them, and since you can buy a small amount for yourself, they're a pretty cheap thrill.
