Green tea (matcha) things


Today we had afternoon tea, and dropped by the Nana's Green Tea Cafe. After having ordered three identical sets in every regard at the Chinese restaurant, I asked the cashier that we wanted to order (and pay) one at a time. I started by ordering their "Christmas green tea Chocolate fondant" with sweet beans ice cream, and a "Matcha Latte". One of my friends asked me: "Did you just order for me?" since apparently she had just said she wanted exactly that. I explained that I had only ordered for me. Then the other two also ended up ordering identical sets, so again we showed how weak we are to peer pressure, haha.


The sweet beans ice cream was nice, the matcha chocolate fondant was very nice, and the matcha latte was as you would expect in Japan (which is pretty good).

    1. Jag gillar matcha, men mina föräldrar tyckte inte om det när de var i Japan. Det kanske är en vanesak? Men jag har för mig att jag gillade det från början.

  2. Jag älskade det från första glasstestet 2009 :-) Och Micke tycker fortfarande att jag är helknäpp som gillar det, så det är nog mer en smaksak än en vanesak! :-)
