A quick post to share a recent discovery of mine – themed afternoon teas in Tokyo! I had no idea this was a thing, but hotels in Tokyo often run themed afternoon teas and one that we came across during our time in Tokyo was matcha (!) themed afternoon tea which we found at ANA Intercontinental Tokyo!
I love matcha and matcha desserts so I was so excited to come across this whilst conscientiously researching things to eat in Tokyo (very important).
Come have a peek below!
Our beautiful Matcha Afternoon Tea set had a variety of sweet and savoury items (all matcha flavoured, of course) including matcha cheesecake, macarons, panna cotta, scones, tarts and warabi mochi (my favourite – the mochi cubes coated with matcha powder, in case you don’t know what they are). This is served with matcha tea, of course, as well as your own choice of drinks as well.
Everything was matcha-licious and perfect for a matcha lover.
The Matcha Afternoon Tea at ANA Intercontinental Tokyo is one of two lavish matcha offerings at the hotel. The other of which is their Matcha Dessert Buffet (!) should you wish to matcha your afternoon away!
They are currently running their Matcha Collection until 19th of July 2019 – after that they’ll be switching to a new theme – summer fruits.
