Today's "Find From Japan" is green tea caramel. It's not as tasty as the next find on the list, but it is a great representation of the wide availability of green tea foods in Japan. Green tea is in a huge range of foods, like tea-rice soup, Kit Kats and all sorts of candies. It seems like everywhere you go, there's something made with tea... and that's what's truly remarkable about this "find" -- the fact that it is so commonplace in Japan, yet so uncommon here.
Next up: Green Tea Yokan.
