If you are a huge fan of matcha, AnakJajan guarantee you will obviously gone mad the minute you reach Japan because you can easily find anything green tea/ matcha almost anywhere. Nana’s Green Tea is a popular matcha chain established 14 years ago in Japan. They are the pioneer of Japanese Matcha Greentea Cafe.

AnakJajan visited their branch at Tokyo Solamachi (Tokyo SkyTree), their shop is really lovely, simple yet romantic with the use of curtains as separator between the seats and huge window facing outdoor terrace area.
Since we had more than 5 meals already on that day (breakfast, sushi, dessert, snacks, chocolate ‘teatime’), we only ordered two desserts menu for our second teatime 😀 We ordered Bracken-starch Dumpling on Matcha Frappe 670 yen and Matcha Gateaux Chocolat 580 yen (1yen = IDR 110). Don’t forget to request for ENGLISH MENU so it will be easier for you to order.
Bracken-starch Dumpling on Matcha Frappe 670 yen (1 yen = IDR 110)
There are 6 topping selection for Matcha Frappe such as ice cream, softcream, jelly, whipped cream, etc.
AnakJajan chose the most unique topping that is Bracken-Starch Dumpling, the texture was similar with jelly with a nice smoky aroma in it. Goes really well with the thick matcha frappe.
Matcha Gateaux Chocolat 580 yen (1yen = IDR 110)
The cake was really dense and rich with matcha goodness, served with light whipping cream with brown sugar syrup. So so so good!! Mr. Jajan loves it so much he couldn’t find anything similar since then. If we re-visit Nana’s Green Tea, Mr. Jajan confirms will order this menu again, he might not wanting to share it with me anymore 🙂
Overall, Nana’s Green Tea menus have a really nice quality and it was delightful with the right amount of sweetness and richness. Totally will come back if we have a chance. Lets’ Travel and Jajan!!
