Everyone is Crazy for Yoku Moku's Newest Treat: the Cigare au Matcha, Available from March 15!

Update: 19 March 2018

On March 15, YOKU MOKU, the Japanese confectionery maker, will release Cigare Au Matcha, a green tea infused version of its signature light and delicately rolled Cigare cookie. This is your chance to get your hands on the treats that sold out immediatly upon realse last year.

Cigare Au Matcha, The Cookie That Sold Out In 5 Minutes

March 2017 marked the first time in 13 years that YOKU MOKU added a new product to their lineup.
The unique pairing of uji matcha, one of the highest grades of green tea in Japan, and the signature buttery richness found in YOKU MOKU Cigare led to Cigare Au Matcha selling out within minutes of its release in several locations.
This year, you’ll be able to buy an assortment of Cigare Au Matcha that also includes YOKU MOKU original Cigare. Both are available online from February 15, so don’t hesitate if you want to get you hands on spring’s hit treat.

Period of Sale: March 15, 2018 until supplies last
Retail Locations: YOKU MOKU Aoyama Flagship Store and YOKU MOKU shops in department stores, train stations and airports across Japan

Top: Cigare Au Matcha Bottom: Cigare Au Matcha Assorted contains 12 Original Cigare rolls (left) and 10 Cigare Au Matcha rolls (right). 2,000 yen (2,160 tax incl.)

The relaxing aroma matcha compliments the generous use of butter. Topping off your sensory experience is the faint taste of matcha flavored chocolate, earning this treat legions of matcha-loving fans as well.
