Uji-based green tea store Itohkyuemon is set to hold its Matcha x Hydrangea Matsuri 2019 in line with the hydrangea season until the end of June.

 

The main branch of Itohkyuemon in Uji is close to Mimuroto Temple, a temple famous for its hydrangea foliage visited by countless tourists during the rainy season. During this season, customers can be waiting up to 3 hours to enter the cafe. Last year, there were even days where they were closed by noon.

The promotional video for Itohkyuemon’s Hydrangea Parfait garnered over 1.5 million views on their official Twitter page. It is the season’s No. 1 parfait, made with matcha hydrangea kinton, crushed hydrangea-coloured jelly, leaf-shaped matcha cookies, blueberries and more. This year, the shop introduces its new Yuzu Shizuku & Matcha Set.

Hydrangea Panna Cotta: ¥540 (Tax Included)

Matcha Hydrangea Kinton: ¥777 (Tax Included)

A variety of hydrangea-themed sweets and desserts will also be available to purchase and can be enjoyed in the cafe or ordered for takeout. This includes the Hydrangea Panna Cotta which sold out last year, the Matcha Hydrangea Kinton and more. All these treats are available in limited quantities.
