Special Valentine’s Day Matcha Soft Serve
17 January – 14 February 2017
Gion Tsujiuri (Tokyo Skytree Town Solamachi shop)
Roses are red, Violets are blue. Matcha sweets are … green! Whether solo or in love, here is a delicious Valentine’s Day treat for all matcha sweets lovers.
Gion Tsujiri is a Kyoto-based Japanese tea company specialized in Uji tea and matcha sweets, and runs popular Japanese-tea houses in Kyoto. Its outlet at Tokyo Skytree Town “Solamachi” offers a variety of matcha-based soft serve ice creams and drinks, as well as Uji tea leaves and matcha-flavoured delicacies.
Now they offer a special matcha-flavoured ice cream, available only at their Tokyo shop and for a limited period up to Valentine’s Day. A rich matcha soft serve of Uji tea comes with a piece of “Gâteau Bubu matcha-chocolate crunch” and three kinds of heart-shaped sweets of macaron, hazelnut jelly and raspberry mousse. Two layers of raspberry jelly and “mousse au Hoji-cha” at the bottom of the cup add an excellent finishing touch. Gently sweetened, with a hint of sourness, this special desert is a must-try if you visit Tokyo Skytree.
For one more fun activity, you may like to visit Sumida Aquarium, located also at Solamachi, to meet jellyfish and penguins!
