Has anybody had matcha infused chocolate?

Just wanted opinions of people that have had it or were thinking about trying it. Wouldn't the matcha be a little overpowering? Just a thought

I've yet to try matcha flavored chocolate, but I have had a variety of green tea chocolate, and it has never been overpowering.

I've never had it, but I highly doubt the matcha would be overpowering. I made a matcha milkshake once, with a hefty amount of matcha, and I couldnt taste the matcha at all. I would believe the chocolate would way-overpower the matcha unless they added an insane amount of matcha to it, or seperate matcha flavoring.

I suppose the only case where the matcha could be overpowering is with white chocolate. Even so... I doubt it would be. When I make matcha ice cream, even though I add a sizable amount of matcha, the matcha flavor is there but it's not very intense.

...I agree, I use matcha in cooking all the time, it is never overpowering.

In fact there is another thread on the subject.

So the consensus is its not overpowering but good? Should I at least venture out and try? Even more curious now. You guys are bad, teasing me a little each way to venture into this crazy tea world. :lol:

By all means, go out and grab up all the matcha-food you can.

There isn't a single place over here for me to find the stuff.

I'm seriously deficient.

I have tried some little matcha truffles.

I really didn't like them very much. I don't really think that green tea and chocolate make for the greatest flavor combination.

If I find any good tea infused chocolates will let the forum know. I'm not quite sold on it yet but will have to try to see.

If you can find a source for those matcha kit-kats they have in Japan I will love you.

Apparently there are several varieties of matcha Kit-Kat bars in Japan. I found links for two different types on a US vendor, and neither are the first type I saw:

Green Tea "Melty" Kit-Kat
Green Tea Milk Kit-Kat
You can get both as well as four other types of green tea chocolate candies here for about $15 USD.
