Hello, I’m Fumi. I introduce the one of famous Japanese seasonal food in cafeteria. Have you ever seen or tried to drink matcha, green tea? Matcha is made from natural green tea leaves.Most Japanese have drunk it for a long time.
We used to serve hot green tea for guests and drink it while we took a rest or after eating meals. But nowadays, we enjoy eating matcha sweets, ice cream and cold green tea.
You can find it everywhere in Tokyo, Japan, for example at cafeterias, restaurants, convenience stores and drugstores. In this article, I tell you a cafeteria that is located in the famous sightseeing spot, Asakusa in Tokyo.
Having Japanese Green Tea at Asakusa Cafeteria
I went to Asakua in a hot summer, so I was very thirsty because I walked lot in a crowd. I found a small cafeteria that has a nice and traditional ambience. You want to feel like you travel into the Japanese old days, don’t you?
I found the unique things inside the café. You can ask a waitress what those things are. It’s fun to have communicate with local Japanese.
It has various kinds of green tea or tea with topping in the menu. I had a cold green tea with ice cream on it. Green tea is bitter and vanilla ice cream was sweet.
So, I had cream one bite first, after that I drunk tea. Unfortunately, there were lot of ice cubes in the cup, so I couldn’t have lot green tea. If you don’t need ice cube, you can say it when you order.
