So what is it?
This Pocky has a tea flavored biscuit stick (rare in itself in the Pocky world) with a sweet Azuki Bean topping. The biscuit stick is infused with Kyoto Uji powdered tea to give it the unique taste.

The Azuki bean is a popular bean that is regularly sweetened and used in all manner of desserts in Japan. Pocky have released Azuki Bean flavors in the past before, and the topping on the Pocky is smooth and pretty mild.

The dryness of the biscuit and the twang that you get from the taste of tea is odd at first, but it soon all blends together quite well.
