Hello to all the Matcha Lovers, or まっちゃんズ. まっちゃん(Matchan) is a nickname my friend gave me because I love matcha too much. You will not be wasting a minute of your time because this page will tell you everything you need to know about the best matcha gelato store you won’t want to miss out on when visiting Tokyo!
Yes you have read correctly. It’s not just ice cream, GELATO and it’s located in Tokyo!!
It is about a 7 minute walk from Asakusa Shrine.
Tokyo tea shop, Suzukien (壽々喜園), has collaborated with Shizuoka’s famous green tea gelato shop Nanaya (ななや) to sell the most intense matcha flavored gelato in the world.
The way this works is that you can select the matcha level of your gelato from No.1~ No.7. No. 3 is considered to be the regular matcha flavor, so you can decide if you prefer a sweeter or bitter flavor. No. 7 is most bitter so of course I went for that one.
Meanwhile, there are other flavors such as Hojicha, black sesame, Genmaicha, and strawberry. I also wanted to try the strawberry, so I got a double scoop. You can see the greenness of No. 7 very well in this picture.
Single scoop in a cup (No.1~No.6) ¥340, On a cone ¥360
Double scoop in a cup (No. 1~No.6) ¥440, On a cone ¥460
Single scoop in a cup (No.7) ¥530, On a cone ¥550
Double scoop in a cup (No.7) ¥630, On a cone ¥650
It is a little pricey, but it is totally worth it…
After the first lick, the perfect word came out of my mouth, “神” (Kami). Kami literally means “god” and it is one of the “若者言葉” (Wakamono-kotoba), or slang words used by young Japanese people. It has recently been one the buzzwords and young people use it to praise something. The sweetness of the strawberry gelato and the bitterness of the matcha’s combination were marvelous.
If you seriously love matcha, you must go there without a doubt.
Matcha hunting…to be continued….
