Tea Wing: A Source for Premium Matcha

Drinks Kathy YL Chan 4 comments

Tea Wing carries a select range of Japanese teas (the owner personally goes to source in Japan each harvest), and matcha is their signature product. I visited the Tea Wing headquarters for a taste, and their offerings were easily best matcha I've tasted in US. More

Sugar Rush: Matcha Mousse at Soba Totto

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Like many Japanese sweets, names can be deceiving. This is more jelly-like than a mousse with a light, almost foamy texture. The matcha is bold, and the near bitterness is tempered with sweet whipped cream and strawberries. More

Drinks Kathy YL Chan 1 comment

In the fall, I trade in iced tea for warmer lattes, more specifically matcha lattes, a longtime obsession of mine. The best ones came from Tafu, where they topped each heady concoction with whipped cream and kuromitsu or even silky housemade chocolate syrup if desired. But with Tafu closed, I set out to find the best spots for matcha lattes in NYC. More

Spice Hunting: Matcha

Sweets Max Falkowitz 12 comments

Matcha's versatility is on par with cinnamon, and it's about as miraculous. It brings both rounded sweetness and a pleasant bitterness to a wide range of baked goods. While its Area 51 color and intense flavor have scared some away, it's an easy-to-use addition to the adventurous baker's pantry. More

Matcha Ice Cream and Cookies

Sugar Rush: Ennju's Matcha Pudding

New York Kathy YL Chan 2 comments

[Photo: Kathy Chan] Light, almost foamy, and more bitter than sweet, the Matcha Pudding ($3) at Ennju, a Japanese take-out spot comparable to Cafe Zaiya, is oddly intriguing. A dollop of azuki bean paste, and it's clear—this is a... More

Paris Bite: Matcha and Adzuki Duomo from Patisserie Sadaharu Aoki

Sarah Wolf 11 comments

Despite appearances, this treat from Patisserie Sadaharu Aoki is not a tiny green hamburger attached to a giant ball of moss. It's actually a matcha and adzuki duomo, a green tea-flavored (matcha) ball of creamy goodness containing a shell filled with sweet red bean paste (adzuki), with a miniature matcha macaron stuck on the side. It's one of the most incredible taste sensations I've ever experienced, a perfect blend of two sophisticated culinary traditions. The delicate, crispy textures, the creaminess, and the sweetness are all classically French, but the flavors are unquestionably Japanese—a melding of Aoki's Tokyo roots and his Paris influences. Sadaharu Aoki 35 Rue de Vaugirard, 75006, 6th Arrondissement, Paris, France (map) 01 45 44 48 90... More
