Mavo Bl∞m in Gion, Kyoto, offers a gorgeous collaboration of décor and Japanese tea that enhances each other's flavors.

04/03/2024 open

French restaurant MAVO has opened a new restaurant, MAVO bl∞m (Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture), where you can enjoy a tea pairing of Japanese tea with an Hachette Dessert (a plated dessert). The full-course menu is designed so that both the dessert and the tea take center stage.

We use a combination of citrus fruits and herbs, as well as seasonal vegetables, but we are conscious of making it a dessert," says chef-pastry chef Misa Hataya. The French technique is also a feature, and sometimes it takes three days to make a sauce using fruits, herbs, spices, and other ingredients to create a deep flavor.

All dishes and drinks start at 16,500 yen course. The refreshing combination of tree bud ice cream and summer oranges is combined with the depth of the sauce and the sweetness of the cream. Paired with a hojicha tea base with hibiscus, mallow black flowers, and tomatoes to add sweetness and acidity.

The final dish of the course, which expresses the restaurant's concept of "chaka orizuke" (a blend of tea and sweets). Baked sweet bean paste is layered with matcha risotto cooked in Japanese soup stock, dried apricots, and matcha tuile.

The tea poured into wine glasses is full of delicious flavor, which is created by maximizing the potential of the tea using our proprietary extraction technology. The aroma and visual beauty of the tea also complement each other, making this a unique experience.
