My very last bite to eat in Japan was going to be breakfast at the airport in Osaka. After going through customs it turned out that there were really next to no choices. There was one Starbucks, and that was about it. I was determined to get at least something local, so I opted for a green tea scone, something I haven’t seen served anywhere else.
The matcha powder had turned the whole scone green, so I was worried it would be too overpowering. Even though there was definitely a strong savory note the flavor was not too strong. I think it was also counterbalanced by the big chunks of white chocolate that give this scone that little bit of sweetness it was crying out for.
