The first Macao Imperial Tea store in Japan
Tea Cafe’s international brand, Macao Imperial Tea, just opened its very first store in Japan. The milk tea brand, originally from Macau, continues to expand its reach throughout Asia including China, Malaysia, Philippines, and Vietnam.
Having a theme of “Love,'' the tea store has a wall painting inside that depicts the “Love Story of Cheese and Spring Tea.” Cheese tea, in fact, is gaining a lot of attention among locals and tourists in Japan. It seems to be the next big thing in the country right next to tapioca drinks.
Let’s take a look at some of their drinks:
Cheese Alisan Milk Tea (¥550 excluding tax) combines the flavors of aroma-rich tea and cheese.
Part of what makes the brand’s milk tea drinks so popular is its rich aroma and flavor. Their stores use only the highest quality of tea leaves from China and Taiwan in preparing their beverages.
Among the best-selling drinks that use these carefully-selected tea leaves are the cheese tea, milk tea, and fruit tea. Non-milk tea fans are spoilt for choice as well since the brand offers a variety of soda drinks that make use of fresh fruits. Aside from that, their tapioca topping is also very delicious because the store uses nama tapioca (raw tapioca), made from an original blended powder kneaded at each store. Upon sipping your drink, you’re guaranteed to enjoy both its unique texture and flavor.
Blue Soda (¥550 without tax) is popular for its refreshing taste.
Some of their drinks can easily be taken out as well since they come in a reusable bottle. Just make sure to close the lid firmly and you’re good to go and carry it anywhere. You can also bring it with you the next time you visit the shop or use it to carry your drinks on a daily basis.
