One great thing about eating in Japan is that fast food chains like McDonald’s and Burger King offer special, seasonal menus. The latest item to come across our radar is this matcha pie from Burger King.
The pie was initially introduced for a limited time last November as part of a new series of desserts for grown-ups. It's now back in restaurants, once again for a limited time, so we recommend moving fast if you want to try this special dessert.
This matcha pie is made using Uji matcha from Morihan, a long-established tea brand from Kyoto. It's the ultimate matcha dessert as the tea is used in both the pie crust as well as the filling. The filling also includes Hokkaido azuki beans for some added texture.
The matcha pie is now available at selected Burger King stores in Japan for a limited time. And until April 6, you can get a ¥20 discount, bringing the price down to ¥220.
