Matcha, Matcha and More Matcha

Recently, I was craving for Matcha drinks and desserts, especially the Japanese version. So I went round the island in search to satisfy my craving. LOL!!

I tried the Shiramata Parfait (O-Maccha). Tsujiri’s Green Tea Soft Serve Ice Cream is by far the best. It has a very good amount of green tea aroma. The creaminess is also just right. It just blew me away completely. The mochi is chewy and soft as well. I didn’t like the Azuki as I find it too sweet.

Nana Nana’s Matcha Soft Serve does not has a good enough green tea flavour, It is a little too light, though the sweetness level was all right. I like their Matcha Latte as it has a rich enough of green tea flavour and not over-powered by the milk. The scoop of ice cream was generous and likewise, it has a flavourful green tea in it. The small mochi was chew, soft but yet firm to the bite.

Matcha House's Matcha Latte

The Matcha Latte at Matcha House is as good a Nana Nana. The milk is not overwhelming, just enough while it has a rich enough green tea taste in the drink. The scoop of green tea ice cream is a little tiny and a little too sweet while the mochi is a little too huge. The mochi is soft and firm to the bite. It isn’t the chewy kind.

The Green Tea Soft Serve Ice Cream is a good too. Perfect level of sweetness and has a very green tea flavour in it. Though the green tea flavour may not be as strong as Tsujiri but is definitely enough.

Sta Marc’s Matcha Latte is rather milky and the green tea flavour is not rather light. Milk fans would enjoy this latte very much, personally I prefer it to be less milky.

The Matcha Latte has a pretty good balance of green tea and milk. So if you do not like the green tea to be too stronger and like enough milk, this is tailored for you. Likewise for the Matcha Soft Serve Ice Cream. But personally, I like the Matcha to taste stronger.

The Hoshin Coffee Matcha Latte and Soft Serve is one of the best. It has great balance of milk, creaminess and matcha. The flavour of both the latte and soft serve were very similar. None overpowered the other. It was excellent.

Azabu Sabo has chocolate green tea version which I tried, I didn’t like it. I was a little disappointed with the green tea ice cream as there was more sweetness than green tea aroma in the ice cream.

Snaffle's Matcha Soft Serve

Snaffle’s Matcha Soft Serve has a good fragrance of green tea aroma just that it is not creamery enough and the texture is kind of rough. Not too bad after all.
