When you bite into it, there’s a lovely Earl Grey-like aroma!
I love black tea, so I was really impressed with this!
The gaufres are fairly large, but they’re thin and light, so you can finish one surprisingly easily.

When I opened the coffee one, I could smell the fragrant aroma of coffee!
When you look at the cream, you can see coffee grains in it!
Even my kids, who aren’t fans of coffee, enjoyed it!

Matcha

The cream is a beautiful matcha-tinted green.
I was surprised at how authentic the matcha flavor was; among the cream’s sweetness there was the aroma and bitterness characteristic to matcha.
My children didn’t like it as it was bitter, but I’m sure fans of matcha would enjoy it!
