At matchaya, customers can opt to go for oat milk in replacement of the usual fresh milk in their drinks for an additional $1. The choice of oat milk is perfect for those needing dairy-free/gluten-free/vegan options!

Tried the koicha milk previously with fresh milk, and went for oat milk this time round instead out of curiosity. I ended up preferring the version made with oat milk though.
.
Not sure why, but it just felt smoother and creamier and a little less astringent too. However, the additional topup made this drink cost a whopping $8.50. Talk about burning a hole in my wallet..

With the recent hype over Mcdonald’s matcha softserve and people commenting that you can’t expect much for something so cheap, I would just like to urge all of y’all to give chateraise’s Kyoto Uji Matcha soft ice cream a try. It’s only $2.50, pretty wallet friendly, especially considering that i was walking around town and saw that the matcha softserve was selling for an inflated price of $1.70.

I think i can safely say that this is one of, if not the best matcha ice cream that you can get for $2.50. The ice cream is smooth and creamy and carries a bittersweet, earthy flavour worthy to be called matcha, and not like that of heaven & earth’s green tea drink . Even the cone is good, having a distinct black sesame fragrance.

Asked for it to be less sweet and the sweetness level was just right for me. I generally dislike redbeans, especially with my matcha stuff, and this was no exception, with a clear preference for just the normal matcha milk.

Thought that the azuki would come in the super thick, paste kind, but it was actually more of like actual azuki grains, and there was even the skin of the azuki beans with it

The chocolate coating for this was super duper thick, the actual almond itself felt smaller than usual😹 There's no sugar added to it at all, which perhaps explains why it really carries no sweetness, except for the faint cocoa fragrance and the strong vegetal matcha notes.

This was better than your average matcha macaron from elsewhere, but the thin layer of matcha cream was hardly enough to satisfy my matcha cravings😅 The macaron shell was crumbly but i would have liked it to have a little more chew/bite to it, and the meringue-like sweetness of the pastry shell was a little distracting, so while i think its worth a try, i probably would not repurchase this to satisfy my matcha cravings

On the left's the kinako, which is roasted soybean powder, which carried a pleasant, nutty flavour, which i preferred to the matcha, perhaps because the matcha was a little too mild for me as compared to matchaya's. To be honest, i felt that even donki does their warabi mochi better than tsujiri's😅 Texture wise, it really depends on your personal preference. The warabimochi here has a firmer texture, less melt in your mouth than most.

Was rather reluctant to try because i've had their matcha icecream when they launched it in Singapore previously and found it to be a rather sorry excuse of a matcha icecream, tasting rather like Pokka green tea😅 Not sure if thats still the case now though.

Surprisingly, I liked the mcflurry more than i thought I would😹 Like all mcflurry, this uses a base of vanilla ice cream. I guess the name “matcha dip” is due to the use of the matcha sauce, which tasted familiarly like the matcha mcdip cones i’ve had at their other overseas outlets. The matcha sauce is good, slightly sweet of course but carried with it a lingering bittersweet matcha aftertaste. I also particularly enjoyed the crispy little bits which further elevated the textures of the dessert and a slight nutty fragrance.

Tried the Matcha Custard Obanyaki ($2.90) this time as it was sold out when I visited previously. So glad I did😋 The matcha custard was smooth and did not let me down with its distinct bittersweet matcha earthiness. So damn good 😍😋 Definitely my top pick, with the limited edition double chocolate one being next in line. Had this da-baoed back home and the obanyaki was still moist and fluffy✨

Tastewise, it had a nice green tea fragrance, but can get a little too sweet after awhile. The sponge layers (especially the bottom layer) was a little dry though, and I don't think its from being left on display because when I purchased it the whole cake had just been brought out??🤔 #burpple #burpplesg #matcha #matchadessert #cake #tiramisu #ilovematcha #whati8todaysg #whati8today #sgeats #eatmoresg #instafood_sg #singaporefoodlisting #sgfoodblogger #sgfoodies #sgfood #sgfoodhunt #sgfoodhunter #sgfoodtrend #myfooddiary #sgfooddiary #sgcafe #sgcafefood #sgcafehopping #foodforfoodie #foodforfoodies #foodexplorer #singaporeeats #hungryalreadyeats

The highlight in this obanyaki would be the soft warabimochi, which carries a subtle matcha fragrance and sweetness with a rather melt-in-your mouth texture. I also definitely had fun boomerang-ing that mochi pull while getting judged by others; just things i do for the gram 😹

Perhaps because i'm not a fan of redbean, so i didn't really fancy the flavours in this, with the generous amount of azuki which came with kernels of beans still intact and the not red bean paste. Some may be pleased to know that they didn't seemed to be sweetened, so this obanyaki would be suitable if you're looking for something thats lower on the sugar level

Despite its green aesthetics, the matcha dough didn't carry much of a matcha fragrance. I did like how it was moist and fluffy with a slight chew to it. It was surprisingly not as dense as i thought it would be!

Available for a limited time only (though they did not say until when), I really liked the double chocolate obanyaki😋

Comes with substantial fillings of chocolate custard and french premium dark chocolate. The dark chocolate had a gooey and thick texture, contrasting well with the lighter and smooth chocolate custard, a heavenly combination which proved to be just the right level of sweetness.

They currently only accept cash payment, so do ensure that you bring enough cash along with you! (And your patience too, as the queue can get a little daunting)😹

Had the chance to attend the tea ceremony workshop by @tsujiri_sg , where participants get to learn about the history and whisk their own Matcha. You can also sample your tea creations with traditional Japanese warabimochi snacks🍵✨
.
.
.

If whisking matcha isn't your cup of tea (haha), there are many other choices such as the Flower Art and Hi-Tea Workshop at Dean & DeLuca, or a demo workshop with Old Seng Choong where participants can learn how to prepare local favorites like Hainanese Chicken Rice, Laksa and Snowskin Lotus Paste Mookcakes.
