Today, I'm reviewing the Matcha Green Tea Seafood Cup Noodle, a product I'm happy to be able to get my hands on. The cup noodle is in their regular sized cup, but it has some pretty fantastic looking packaging. This is one of the things I like about Japan when they go all out. The theme is green tea, with very traditional Japanese icons shown.
|This is a very attractive cup noodle from the design.|
|You can see Mt. Fuji plays a centerpiece role, with a bullet train running along the bottom.|
|Looking to the back, you can see the nutritional content. Pretty standard for a cup noodle.|
|On the right there is a skyscraper pagoda, a quadcopter drone with a kabuki mask and a lantern, a lady in fancy traditional kimono with a hot water kettle, and a sumo wrestler that is DJing music. Again, really cool graphics.|
|The top of the cup.|
|The cup again.|
|The ingredients include: powdered milk and cheese, seafood extract, slices of octopus, cabbage, egg, carrots,green onions, black pepper, and many others.|
|After adding boiling water, the soup was quit frothy and thicker than normal. I suspect this was from the milk which added a creaminess to the soup. Closing the lid, you let the soup for three minutes.|
|After the three minutes, the soup and noodles have finished rehydrating. The contents were greenish and it smelled seafoody, but it was pretty appetizing to me.|
|The noodles are shown here in more detail. They have a greenish tinge from the tea, but there is no pronounced tea taste.|
