10 Non-Japanese Snacks to Enjoy With Japanese Green Tea

Snacks don’t have to be the destroyers of diet and healthy living when consumed in moderation. There are treats and mini bites that can satisfy sweet cravings without consuming preservatives or artificial flavorings. Some snacks, combined with a healthy drink with only minimal sugar, can fill tummies after a few bites and sips. When it comes to healthy eating, green tea can be mixed with desserts and drinks to make them tastier and healthier. Best of all, they can make everyone satisfied and feel rejuvenated after snacking. When healthy, antioxidant-filled foods and teas are the topics, the healthiest and simultaneously tastiest natural tea is Japanese green tea. Here are the snacks that really go well with this tea:

Lotus Biscoff Biscuits

Lotus Biscoff Cookies, Caramelized Biscuit Cookies, 144 Cookies (12 Sleeves of 6 Two-Packs) Vegan, 3.28 Ounce (Pack of 12)

Chocolate is not the only snack that can be consumed with tea. This European caramelized biscuit tastes sweet yet powdery and matches well when dipped in tea. Great to pair with green tea since melted caramel together with the sweetness of matcha or sencha will make your sweet tooth satisfied even without the chocolate. A good treat for vegans and health buffs.

Godiva Assorted Chocolate Biscuits

Godiva Chocolatier Assorted Chocolate Biscuit Tin, 46 pc.

Godiva, a world-renowned chocolatier from Belgium, has so many varieties of chocolate, but this eye-catching, beautifully designed assorted choco-flavored biscuit set is a surefire way to bring afternoon tea to a higher level. It’s not too expensive to experience the luxury of tasting an artisan chocolate biscuit. The flavor combination of biscuit, chocolate, and sometimes fruits dipped in a cup of Japanese green tea will taste dreamy. This box of chocolate biscuits can give a sophisticated look when placed on a white or beautiful table with a cup of tea on the side.

Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

GHIRARDELLI Semi-Sweet Chocolate Premium Baking Chips, Chocolate Chips for Holiday Baking, 12 Oz Bag (6 Bags)

Some of us see this brand of chocolate drinks as a novelty, but since we love to drink matcha, the semi-sweet chocolate chips will be a nice delight for tea lovers who don’t want too many sweet desserts on their plate. Semi-sweet because the chocolate bits are only lightly sweetened with the right amount of sugar. While it is uncertain if Ghirardelli will ever release a matcha-flavored chocolate, in the meantime, you can enjoy eating their food products with this healthy drink. Just add a spoonful of green tea powder any time Ghirardelli chips are used in a baking recipe. What is certain is that green tea tastes really great with this rich chocolate, or vice versa.

Banana Caramel Keto Muffin Mix

A yummy and easy-to-bake keto dessert that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Keto dieters can enjoy their afternoon tea with these and still be in charge of their carb intake. With no added sugar, when enjoying these muffins together with the light sweetness of sencha, the sugar and carb content will not ruin those health goals.

Dark chocolates are popular to pair with any cup of tea. Having a mini cacao bar is a nice treat when planning to just have a few sips and a light snack while waiting for lunch or dinner or to satisfy cravings before sleep. It’s also not too messy on the hands.

Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookies

Rich dark chocolate biscuits are not just there to satisfy a sweet tooth craving but also to help the tea drinker become full. Since these are individually packed, there is no need to worry about the biscuits losing their crunch after opening the package. Either dipping these in Japanese green tea or biting and then sipping, the snacking experience will make the green tea enthusiasts relaxed and calm.

In the container that will later be turned into a sewing kit, these Danish cookies are an all-time favorite party and tea snack worldwide. Any tea will complement the assorted but  delicious cookies. What makes Royal Dansk different from other Danish cookies is that it has no preservatives or coloring added.

Lay’s Classic Potato Chips

Lays, Classic Potato Chips, 1.5 Oz. (64 Count)

If there is no matcha-flavored potato chip snack at home, just try eating chips, and instead of soda, you can drink a cup of Japanese green tea. Dipping this in chocolate or drizzling it with chocolate syrup is great, too. For a healthier version, get the baked potato chips or just bake your own potato snack: Slice potatoes and drizzle with olive oil. Heat in the oven until crispy (thin slices) or hot. Truly happiness in every bite.

TERRA Original Chips with Sea Salt

Terra Vegetable Chips with Sea Salt, Original, 1 oz (Pack of 24)

The sea salt taste combined with the taste of sencha or matcha will make you like vegetarian "junk foods." They are crispy, and you will never get bored of eating different veggie slices. Gluten-free, GMO-free, and contains kosher salt. No artificial flavors or preservatives There is no trans fat and no cholesterol, meaning everyone can really enjoy a healthy snack time.

Sanders Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels

Sea salt caramel drink flavors are a best seller at many cafés. Some chocolatiers and bakers always have salted caramel on their dessert line. Dark Chocolate + Salted Caramel equals a choco-bursting sweetness. Partner it with green tea and the sweet-toothed person in every tea connoisseur will go into choco-heaven. With over 2 pounds of award-winning chocolates, green tea lovers will never go wrong trying this sea salt caramel dark choco treat.

Depending upon what food type or health goals you want to achieve, Japanese green tea lovers will love these snacks – especially when they become bored with only consuming plain green tea almost every day. With creativity and recipe knowledge, teatime will always be a pleasant experience. Just don’t forget to consume moderately and always brush your teeth.
