Imagine your normal matcha ice cream cone, but with an excess of matcha powder.

A huge excess, actually.

Now, to matcha lovers, it may sound like the treat of a lifetime. But in reality…

It may prove to be a tad bit much to handle, and that’s just the watered-down interpretation.

Japanese Shop Sells Ice Cream With So Much Matcha That You Will Cough Out Powder While Eating It

Japan is a wondrous nation filled with an assortment of interesting things, ranging from robots to anime to dorayakis.

It is also a land where a matcha ice cream cone can apparently make you cough out raw powder.

According to 8Daysthere is a Japanese tea shop over in Tokyo’s Tabata neighbourhood that sells a somewhat overly done matcha soft serve ice cream cone.

Called the Coughing Matcha Cone, the interesting (read: dangerous) creation has consumers spewing tea powder all over the place in what appears to be a “coughing fit”.

And as the name implies, the effect is pretty much intentional.

“We dust [the powder] thickly so our customers can try it,” the manager of Nagamine Seicha said.

And People Are Really Coughing Out Powder

Over in Facebook group Anime Expo Cosplayers Tugegarao, there’s a video that documents the creation of the cone, as well as the reactions of unexpecting consumers.

Suffice to say; it was a green fest that would’ve made the Incredible Hulk proud.

Witness raw ill-concealed amazement as patrons distinctly overestimate their matcha-eating abilities:

It also got pretty messy in one instance:

As a consumer testified amidst violent wheezes and gagging: “It’s really choking.”

50 shades of grey? How about 50 shades of matcha?

Are you angry at someone now, and can’t get him or her out of your mind? Well, watch this video and you’ll know what to do next:

Meanwhile, if you’re a Tokyo-based reader who’s keen to exhale powder in the air without committing a legal violation, you can head on down to the store for some… choking time.
