Burger Kings Japan Kyoto Tea Matcha Pie Review: A Unique Fusion of Flavors

burger kings matcha tea pie

Have you tried the Burger Kings Japan Kyoto Tea Matcha Pie? I did! And my oh my it was amazing. 

I find it fascinating that in Japan, the way a product is named can imply a sense of elegance and class, particularly when it comes to the culinary arts. 

My Matcha Pie has a decidedly straightforward name in English that cafe goers can easily understand. 

However, its Japanese counterpart carries a more refined touch: Watakushi no Matcha Pie. The term ‘watakushi’ is a formal way to say “I” in Japanese, setting a tone of sophistication for this dessert.

In collaboration with Morihan, a venerable Kyoto-based green tea company established in the mid-19th century, this Japanese fast-food indulgence marries contemporary cravings with traditional flair. 

Locally sourced matcha from Uji, a region renowned for its superior green tea, is meticulously integrated into both the pie crust and lush matcha cream, creating an exquisite balance of sweetness and the distinct, nuanced bitterness of green tea.

The filling’s symphony of flavors is further enriched by the addition of azuki beans from Hokkaido, offering a delightful contrast in both taste and texture. 

Initially introduced last autumn, the treat captured the hearts of dessert aficionados but was available only for a brief period.

To the joy of many, the pie has made its anticipated return as of March 31.
