Hot on the heels of cherry blossom season, cookie manufacturers have apparently decided it’s green tea season. My local grocery store snack shelves are suddenly filled with dubious flavor combos like these green tea and chocolate chip numbers. Mind you, I’ve got nothing against mattcha when it’s whipped into hallucinogenic caffeine perfection in a tea bowl and served overlooking a 17th century garden, but green is just not my chocolate chip cookie color of choice.
Jonelle Patrick writes novels set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
