Matcha made from heaven above!
?Tsujiri – ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
?Podium Mall, Mandaluyong City
?Date for Two: Matcha Citron Cake, Matcha Blanca Cake, Tsujiri Jelly Sundae
Overall: Matcha has taken over our country’s food scene for years now, and this flavor will sure stay long, even forever. Coffee shops, local restaurants and even fast food chains already got their versions of food and drink, all with Matcha to taste. Everyone is on hype on everything Matcha. And good thing the mother of all Matcha came to town. Say hello to Tsujiri.
This ancient brand first opened this year in S’Maison Mall, Pasay City and soon opened subsequently at SM Mall of Asia. North peeps couldn’t reach this far regularly so we’re thrilled to know that they have opened a new branch in the newly-renovated Podium Mall. To date, they have also opened another branch at SM Aura, which is currently doing good as the place is always packed with millies, Matcha lovers and group of friends and family.
You might have noted the word ancient here. ‘Coz yes, there are legit ancient! Did you know Tsujiri existed even before our grandparents did? Yep! That old! The brand started 1860 and is globally known for their high-grade green tea. They are now serving customers worldwide via franchise and we’re lucky to be one of the countries to experience this.
Tsujiri Jelly Sundae (P285) – Their sundaes are the best-sellers among all their uniquely-crafted desserts. It’s a work of art, as the layers are done to bring out the best possible way to enjoy the cup. One order is composed of roasted brown rice crispies, Matcha sundae, red bean paste, another layer of sundae and for the toppings, Matcha jellies, mochi and sakura-inspired rice cracker. This one’s definitely IG-worthy!
At first glance, this small cup seems like too expensive at P285 but we assure you, this is worth the extra money you have to shell out. Several reasons why – their Matcha is of the highest quality, so heighten your expectations and be prepared to be blown away as Tsujiri will let you experience ‘Real Matcha’. ‘Real Matcha’ is sweet, savory and does have a tiny taste of bitter in the end. We have this impression that Matcha is bitter in general, and is sweetened and neutralized by the sugars and creams in normal Matcha drink/dessert. As the Matcha they are using is of high quality, there is a high risk of quality downgrade over time as well. Their best solution, have all the ingredients shipped via air, and not by seas, to ensure preservation of quality. For the red bean layer, they have mashed it into a paste, which is a big plus for us. We are not red bean lovers as the texture is awkward, so this paste made us love this sundae even more.
Matcha Citron Cake (P200) – For Matcha and citrus fruits lovers, this combination is for you. This sour and sweet cake is a hit for us they are blended perfectly.
Matcha Blanca Cake (P230) – For those who were left with no options but to come in Tsujiri (Hello, IG boyfriends who would do anything for their loves! Haha!), fret not as Tsujiri have chocolate and vanilla dessert options for you!
After this visit, we don’t think we’ll be settling for cheap Matcha now. Lol! Head over to Podium now to have the experience as well.
Value for money: Worth it! You’ll get authentic Matcha goodness 🙂
