I would love to say that my socks were knocked off by this, but I’d be preaching a lie. Sure, the layer of azuki provides a sweetening contrast to the vegetal, bitter taste stemming from the matcha (which wasn’t that intense to begin with), but unfortunately, I couldn’t find a reason to be compelled with this. Really, I could try to sugarcoat it, but the fact of the matter is – it didn’t manage to make an impression on me. 🙁

If you haven’t tried this yet, I can tell you that you won’t be missing out on much except for the opportunity for an Instagram profile spice-up. Given it’s steep price point, you might want consider going for their other cakes. I saw Honey Earl Grey, Goma, Lemon Meringue among others, all of which piqued my interest. 😍 (6.8/10)
