Ikea Japan's annual Matcha Sweets Fair is back and this year you can enjoy a range of desserts and sweets made with the bold, umami-rich green tea powder. The limited-time menu will have traditional Japanese desserts as well as a matcha-infused afternoon tea set, and it's available from Thursday May 11 to Sunday June 25 at Ikea stores across Japan.
Love all things matcha? Here’s what you can expect from this year's Matcha Sweets Fair at Ikea.
These matcha pancakes (¥700) are served with a refreshing sour cream sauce and sweet red bean paste.
This matcha afternoon tea set (¥590) includes a matcha gateau chocolate, matcha strawberry daifuku (sweet chewy rice cake) and matcha mont blanc. When ordering the tea set, you'll also get your choice of coffee or tea from the drink bar.
The matcha mont blanc (¥350) can also be ordered individually.
Dig into a decadent biscuit-based matcha tart (¥390) or opt for a vibrant green matcha soufflé roll (¥350).
Want matcha for breakfast? Order a matcha bagel (¥290) or a matcha muffin (¥250) to start your day.
Of course, the Matcha Sweets Fair wouldn’t be complete without the crowd-pleasing matcha ice cream. Take your pick from two options: a matcha sundae with warabi mochi (¥250) or a matcha soft cream cone (¥120).
