Thanks to the loving people behind Kumori, I was one of the first to try its newest Hanjuku flavor last month. I was very excited to it after hearing that it's based on one of my favorite drinks.
I had my box of Hanjuku Cheese delivered to R's office considering that it is nearer Kumori's newest branch. And after setting the delivery date, I giddily waited for my package to arrive.
It arrived during lunch which made it perfect as dessert and afternoon treat.
After taking a few snapshots using whatever items I have available as props, I indulged myself in a piece.
Earl Grey Hanjuku Cheese had the same consistency as its other Hanjuku flavors. Fitting for its tagline "bite into cloud", this small but compact treat needs to be held with the gentlest touch as it is very soft.
One small bite of it would give you a nice pronounced taste of Earl Grey (black tea with a hint of citrus flavor) which harmoniously blends with cream cheese.
Though I don't consider this to be the best flavor released by Kumori to date (I am still head over heels in love with Ube Hanjuku Cheese), this is a lovely addition to its list of delectable offerings.
