Foodie Friday: Matcha Crisps

Matcha crisps: green tea-flavored cookies


For regular followers of my blog, it’s no surprise that I’m a green tea lover. My wonderful dad (so sweet!) picked up a package of matcha crisps on his recent visit to Malaysia. If you look closely at the pic, you’ll see a “Penang” sticker.

These are not British crisps, which are akin to potato chips. I think they’re more like cookies. Here are my favorite attributes about them:

  • Not too sweet (it’s more of a snacking food)
  • Balanced between bitter and sweet (although it could stand to have more tea kicking power)
  • Great crunch (the wafer thin quality lends to satisfying munching)

Fun fact: I added matcha love to my recently modified “fun” or casual young adult author bio…
