Daifuku strawberry, Neriki, Sakura Mochi, Hot Hojicha.
Great desserts and tea house.

This little Japanese tea salon located at Damansara Utama is a perfect place to rewind after a long day at work. They have quite a big selection of Japanese Tea and Desserts.

My all time favourite here would be the Daifuku and Japanese WarabiMochi, starch jelly coated with soy bean powder and served with brown sugar! Addictive yet not overly sweet for my liking. A good spot for date nights too!


Teapress Japanese tea rosters as the name suggested are well known for their teas and also their ever so photogenic and adorable sweet treats that truly are a scrumptious partner with their well thought after tea menu.. Well other than the petite daifuku's which are their best seller, we came across something that is rather unique and not found in most Japanese restaurant menu which is the Ochazuke.. Ochazuke is actually a rice dish with a tea broth and sometimes the rice dish will be accompanied by either Salmon or Saba.. So when we were browsing through its newly revamped menu, we were really elated to find such a dish and didn't hesitate to have a go with it! So in their menu they have a Salmon or Saba option which is of same price and we went for the Salmon Ochazuke (RM15).. The wait wasn't too long and while you beginning to enjoy the wonders of the tea you've chosen, there comes the Ochazuke being serve together in a tray which is reminiscent to the style of a bento.. In that tray, it consists of the rice bowl which is has generous sprinkles of Mentai salmon that was crumbled and sliced seaweed and alongside it is a pot of tea broth that is warm and the plate of additional tea bits.. After pouring that lovely broth, we immediately had the first spoonful of it and it was really a surprise how light the tea was in terms of the color but in terms of the flavour is was really intense yet pleasant and it goes swimmingly well with the salmon and the rice.. This bowl is truly an amazing bowl of contrasting textures and flavours yet it goes harmoniously together in every spoonful!


Fresh strawberry coated with a layer of sweet red bean paste enveloped by a soft paper thin mochi skin.
The sweetness of the paste compliments the natural tinge of sourness from the fruit and contrasting texture from the softness of the mochi skin to the crunchiness from the berry makes it ever so flavorful. Simply heavenlyโ˜บ๏ธ
