Indulge in a Matcha Mont Blanc Parfait at Itohkyuemon’s Matcha & Chestnut Fair

03.September.2018 | FOOD

Itohkyuemon is a Japanese green tea store based in Uji, Kyoto that first established after the Edo period. The Matcha x Chestnut Fair 2018 began at the shop on August 27, the first event it has held based on chestnuts.

 

The shop has introduced a new seasonal dessert for autumn – the Matcha Mont Blanc Parfait. This is the latest seasonal product since the Hydrangea Parfait released for Japan’s rainy season.

Matcha Mont Blanc Parfait: ¥1,280 (Tax Included) – Available from August 27 until sold out *Eat in only

The Matcha Mont Blanc Parfait is made with matcha ice cream and chestnut ice cream.  It also includes thin broken pieces of cookie dough for added texture. It has a lingering aftertaste of Japanese chestnuts and the deliciousness of matcha.

Uji Matcha Verrine Mont Blanc: ¥594 (Tax Included) – Available from September 12 *Takeout only at Uji branch

The Uji Matcha Verrine Mont Blanc was developed by head chef Kishimoto as a matcha mont blanc that can be ordered for takeaway. You can enjoy two distinct flavours – matcha cream and chestnut cream.

 

The shop is also selling another kind of bright green Uji matcha mont blanc on its website.

All of these gorgeous looking desserts are Instagram-worthy, so head on over to the Matcha x Chestnut Fair to enjoy a range of tasty autumn treats!
