The package of Kirin Afternoon Tea TEA SELECTION Chocolate Tea Latte looks like this.



The lid part said 'HOT & COLD'.



They use 20% Dimbula tea leaves, 100% cocoa from Ghana, and fresh cream.



When I checked the ingredients, I found milk (raw milk (domestic)), sugar, black tea (Dimbla 20%), whole milk powder, sugar, cocoa powder, cream, dextrin, salt, etc. The content is 400ml.



The calorie is 37kcal per 100ml, so it is 148kcal per bottle.



First, I poured it cold into a clear glass.



When you drink it, you can feel the scent of black tea and the scent of chocolate at the same time. Before drinking it, I expected it to be richly sweet like hot chocolate, but in reality it was less sweet and had a refreshing taste. The sweetness does not linger and disappears quickly, leaving a refreshing aftertaste and a lingering aroma after drinking.



This time I tried drinking it warmed up.



When warmed up, the cocoa scent seemed to be stronger than when it was cold. In the cold state, it was 'chocolate-flavored black tea', but in the warm state, it felt like 'black tea-flavored cocoa'. As expected, it has a refreshing sweetness, so it is recommended to drink it when you want to change your mood.



'Kirin Afternoon Tea TEA SELECTION Chocolate Tea Latte' can be purchased nationwide from January 30, 2024 (Tuesday), and the suggested retail price is 173 yen excluding tax.
