Nakamura Tokichi – Kyoto Matcha Expert Opens in Hong Kong
[HONG KONG] Matcha expert Nakamura Tokichi from Kyoto has been cultivating tea since 1854. They have won commendations for their excellent yields, and have even served their teas to Japanese Emperors. Good news! They have opened their first overseas outlet in Hong Kong Mira Mall. So you don’t have to fly all the way to Kyoto for it!
We queued for about an hour just to enjoy their celebrated green tea-based snacks and desserts. The family replicated the same level of dedicated attention in the production of its teas and snacks, using ingredients flown in specially from Uji, impressing Hong Kong’s green tea enthusiasts.
The cold soba noodles had a light matcha flavour and a very good texture.
I like the signature matcha green tea jelly which is accompanied with red bean paste and glutinous rice balls. Flown in from Kyoto daily, the jellies are imbued with the fresh, lively flavour of green tea. The wobbly texture has a good mouthfeel and is not sweet at all, making it a perfect pair-up with the creamy matcha ice cream.
The light and airy Matcha and Hojicha chiffon cakes were paired with chestnuts, red bean and chewy rice ball dumplings. Unfortunately, the parfait were sold out on our day of visit so we didn’t have a chance to try it. Nakamura Tokichi also has a shop in Mira Mall for you to purchase their matcha products.
Address: No. 3005-9 3/F Miramar Shopping Centre, 132 Nathan Road TST Kowloon
Opening Hours: 12pm to 10pm daily
