These are the stuff I ordered. Lets plunge into the review.
Matcha petite gateau $8.80. They have used a generous amount of green tea for its bitterness to come through and the cream is dense. Taste wise, Matcha lovers will not be disappointed. Here's the bad. These is some obligatory sponge cake inside. The cake is dry and doesn't seem to compliment the good quality mousse. It kinda feels like they can't possibly serve you a whole block of mousse so they added some cake. Just my honest opinion. I know this dessert has its fans, its just my own preference.
The hana matcha latte is good smooth and thick. Better quality than starbucks. I know I know, like why would I compare this teahouse to a generic coffee cafe. But hey most of us are also gonna keep to generic costing budget and in fact starbuck is also an indulgent for me too. So yah, while the tea latte is good I leave it to you to decide if at $12.80 it's really ok to pay. Like I said, it's kinda subjective. I guess. I might repeat order the latte or try the other lattes but probably not the petite cake. Can't wait to try the gomma sesame to review.

Wanted to try the waffle but unavailable soo got the goma cake (8.80) good sesame taste, earthy and not too sweet. Not something I’ll crave for tho as I like sweeter desserts. Also got the chaffagato ($7.80) with hokkaido milk ice cream & matcha shot. Like the ice cream, the matcha is good albeit too bitter for me. Eating them together was not bad. Sadly, this place is not my cup of tea and won’t be back

price: $17.60 (extra scoop of gelato was $5.80)

we got the matcha cookies & cream (right) and hokkaido milk (left) flavour🍵🍦 their gelato was really milky and smooth 😋 thought their matcha cookies and cream was gon be pure matcha gelato with oreos but instead it was a milk/vanilla based ice cream with matcha cookies crumbs. definitely not the full matcha experience but still really yummy especially if you are not going for so much of the ‘cha’ taste☺️ their waffles are dairy-free and thus was slightly different from the usual waffles! i felt that it was on the crunchier side and more ‘hollow’ which really complemented the creaminess of the gelato!😌

rate: 8.5/10 ✨

One of my go-to matcha places and is generally a well-accepted matcha-specialty place. I had matcha hojicha latte, no ice and less hojicha syrup (ended up paying $6.8). The staff once told me that their matcha latte is done less sweet by default, and I also ordered less hojicha syrup as I am not quite a hojicha fan. The latter might balance the sweetness since it is syrup. For me, the final concoction's sweetness is just nice.

I really wanted to try Matcha Houjicha Latte ($6.80) (Oat Milk -$1) after a lot of people posted. It's a hybrid between Matcha and Houjicha Latte 🥰 and didn't expected that their combination really good. Matcha (Bitter) and Houjicha (Roasted) was quite interesting and unique drink that I have tried b4. You can opt out less Houjicha Syrup (no cost).

Overall Experience for Conclusion: I really like and enjoy their vibes for sitting at Tatami Carpet itself. If without 1 hour dining restriction, I would want to stay for relaxation. I like their cafe vibes for enjoying tea 🍵

Hokkaido Milk ($5.80) was not milky and creamy taste for me as she asked me to try out for tasting. But their standard for ice cream got that level and didn't disappointed me at all.
