86% Cacao Chocolate and Banana Tapioca Drink, ¥630.
Their drinks are very insta-worthy!
juice&tea bar ORIGAMI is a beauty tapioca drink specialty store that just opened this April. It touts their drinks that contain 500 billion worth of lactic acid bacteria per cup, such as their Plum Blossom Plant Drink with Lactic Acid Bacteria Tapioca Drink. Using locally-sourced fruits, they create delicious and healthy drinks using tapioca.
This summer, the store focuses on the concept of High-Cacao, which is said to be effective in preventing sunburn, and developed the 86% Cacao Chocolate and Banana Tapioca Drink that also protects the skin from UV rays. Cacao, which is the raw material that makes up chocolate, is grown in places that are right under the equator where there are larger amounts of UV rays. They are rich in polyphenols, which have antioxidant properties. Cacao’s polyphenols are also said to suppress the skin redness by aging and exposure to the sun.
The banana liqueur and milk combo is topped with plenty of the High-Cacao Chocolate (86%). The combination of the sweet banana and milk combined with the bitter chocolate is excellent, and there are surprises in texture thanks to the fresh tapioca balls. They’re perfect for the summer season. You can enjoy the difference in texture of the chocolate and tapioca drink without mixing it, or you can also mix everything up and enjoy it like a milkshake. The High-Cacao Chocolate can also be added as a topping to other items on the menu for ¥100.
The exterior of the shop is very trendy.
Such a healthy drink, and so yummy, too. Make sure to get yours ASAP!
