Strawberry matcha sweets from Kyuemon Ito in Uji, Kyoto, are available only during the season!

The popular annual Strawberry Matcha Parfait and this year's limited edition Tale of Genji Strawberry Matcha Sweets Plate are now available at each tea house of the long-established tea shop [Kyuemon Ito] established in the late Edo period. Strawberry matcha sweets can be enjoyed only during the season.

The strawberry matcha parfait, with its eye-catching pink crunchy macaroon cookies and abundance of bright red strawberries, has been newly renewed this year. Fresh Japanese strawberries are topped with chewy white rice balls and bittersweet Uji green tea jelly, creating a beautiful contrast of red, white, and green in this parfait.
