Green Tea Mania's 16 Stocking Stuffer List - 2021 Holiday Version

Green Tea Mania's 16 Stocking Stuffer List - 2021 Holiday Version

Thinking about good gift ideas for a green tea lover in your life? Here is my list of a few green tea products that are good for stocking stuffers. Other cultures have just barely scratched the surface of the many uses of green tea. However, the Japanese have quite a head start and are still discovering new uses as it becomes a popular ingredient worldwide.

The links below conveniently take you directly to Amazon or other online shops so that it is easy for you to purchase.

1. Matcha Kit Kat

Matcha is typically served with Japanese sweets like the gelatinous mochi, as sweets complement the flavors in the green tea. For that reason, commercial sweets producers have jumped on the green tea trend, and you can now buy KitKat bars in Japan made with matcha powder.

The brand name goes back to 1911 in the United Kingdom, and has traditionally been a chocolate candy. However, in 2000, Nestle began releasing new flavors of KitKat’s in Japan, and almost 20 years later, they have debuted over 200 offerings. Among these flavors are green tea and matcha.

2. Green Tea Noodle

Whether it’s soba noodles made with matcha or instant noodles in a cup of green tea, this is one food pairing that is highly popular in Japan that has yet to have a global reach. However, it probably will soon be discovered and become the latest green tea food trend worldwide.

3. Ochazuke (Green Tea Rice)

Anything with “zuke” in the name sounds like it’s made with squash or zucchini. However, this has no zucchini in it at all. This is considered a comfort food and is made with fish, rice, and green tea. The tea is steeped separately before being poured over the rice and topped with toppings such as shredded nori, citrus peel, and other flavorings.  Please check my entire article I wrote about green tea rice here.

4. Mass-Produced Matcha Sweets

Whether you’re a school kid  or a grandparent, there’s undeniably something great about the sugar fix a candy bar provides. Because of this, green tea and matcha-flavored candies have become big business. Here are some of my favorites: Matcha Pocky and Melty Kiss. These two are incredibly popular in Japan.

5. Green Tea Bath Salt and Green Tea Soap

I wrote an article about green tea being good for skin. The Japanese are very ingenious about making use of holistic ingredients to rejuvenate and cleanse the body. As such, green tea is considered a natural detoxifier because it is high in antioxidants. Additionally, it has a sweet scent that many Japanese people find comforting. The caffeine in it can also help raise energy levels and invigorate the senses. Here is a good example of using green tea for skin.

6. Green Tea Incense

Because the smell is sweet and comforting, it’s no surprise that the Japanese decided to make it into incense. Burning incense is ingrained in Japanese culture for various rituals, as a way to cleanse the air, or to simply to make a room smell better. You can adopt this custom by getting your own green tea incense from Japan.

7. Premium Japanese Green Tea

There is nothing better than getting the actual premium green tea! This green tea has won the Global Tea Championship this year.

8. Green Tea Health Book

I Will Teach You How to Be Healthy By Using Japanese Green Tea is a guide to achieving better health and longevity through the use of Japanese Green Tea. This beautifully illustrated guide demonstrates the various uses for this miracle plant and explains the various properties within green tea that makes it an anti-cancer powerhouse (and more). Each page of the book provides readers with a wealth of knowledge that can help to boost the body’s natural immunities, increase energy, and develop a more organic system of hygiene.

9. Green Tea Trivia Book

Did you know that black tea, oolong tea, and green tea come from the same plant or that their labels really just describe where the leaf was left off in the fermentation process? Learn about the unusual uses for green tea such as green tea beer or green tea cake. Find out how to get more of the antioxidant catechin out of tea by adding one simple ingredient. These facts and hundreds more are all contained inside this beautiful guide to Green Tea.

10. Sharp TE-T56U- GR Tea-Cere Matcha Tea Maker

This might not fit in most people’s stocking size but I have to mention this. If you want to make your own matcha, the Sharp TE-T56U- GR Tea-Cere Matcha Tea Maker allows you to grind green tea the way you traditionally would using a stone mill. This machine uses ceramic to mimic the traditional stone mill.  Note that you need to use a specific type of green tea called “Tencha” in order to get resulting Matcha. I wrote a whole review article of this product.

11. Meiji Rich Matcha Biscuits

Chocolate biscuits with matcha filling will make us feel happy and satisfied. Meiji products are very popular because their Almond, Macadamia and Choco Baby are easy to buy almost around the world, and tasty too. It’s sure that this choco matcha biscuits will not leave us disappointed and will make us ask for more. The package design will make us remember about snowflakes, flowers, and the Japanese culture.

Thin cookies with good tasting matcha cream will make us think again of Japan. Even crunchy thin, these are really delicious and perfect match for milk or plain matcha hot drink.  We can definitely finish the whole bag in one sitting, but it will be best to consume these slowly so we can enjoy the chat and appreciate its taste gracefully like making and drinking matcha. Just rest for a bit and have a stress—free snacking time.
