The 33-second video shows a compilation of people struggling after taking a bite of matcha ice cream from Nagamine Seicha, a store in Tokyo. A slightly longer version of the video, which was posted on YouTube in March 2021, briefly shows how the special matcha ice cream is prepared.
Many Twitter users found the reactions to the Nagamine Seicha ice cream hilarious, with some commending the man in a black sleeveless shirt for taking one big bite of the dessert like a champ.

One Twitter user asked if matcha is an irritant that makes people cough, to which another user replied, “The matcha powder is so fine that it’s pretty much impossible not to inhale it, which leads to coughing. Just like cinnamon challenge.”

I don’t know who i like better, the guy who goes in for a second bite after coughing a pound of dust out, or the guy that took half the ice cream in one bite and barely reacted. I can see why you like this so much,” another user wrote.
