Tea Sweet Bun from Nara

A bun called “Lunch pack” (Yamazaki Baking Co., Ltd.) is long running products since they have various flavor and are handy to grab a bite. One of them is “Nara matcha and whipped cream“.

Nara is a prefecture. However, Nara is not well-known as a tea growing area even among Japanese people, although the prefecture is the sixth place in terms of unprocessed tea production in Japan. This bun is popular because of good combination of a bit of matcha bitterness and smooth cream. It could help spread its name recognition as a tea growing area and boost the local economy too!
