Green Tea is a famous traditional drink in Japan that has grown to international popularity. Nowadays, there are green tea cafes and matcha shops increasing in countries outside of Japan like in the United States. With such global popularity, you've probably heard of Matcha green tea before. Matcha is one of the most famous forms of green tea, and is recently becoming a popular flavoring for sweets and snacks. Some popular green tea matcha snacks include mochi, Kit-Kats, cookies, lattes, and more. Matcha can even be found in more savory meals like fish and noodle dishes.
Suzuki-en located in Asakusa, Tokyo is one of Japan's most famous green tea shops. This gelato matcha store offers seven different kinds of green tea gelato. Each flavor varries in intensity of Matcha flavors. Travelers can choose between 1 to 7 Matcha Levels to match their tastes. Level 1 is a fairly sweet gelato with nodes of green tea, while Level 7 is a more flavorful mix with stronger concentration of Matcha flavors. Among Suzuki-en's green tea dessert offerings, the Level 7 continues to be the most popular choice among tourists. In fact, the Level 7 is considered the strongest taste of green tea in the world. Thanks to the international claim-to-fame, many travelers who come to Japan choose Level 7 for a powerful Matcha experience.
Suzuki-en also offers other flavors to their gelato line, such as classic vanilla or chocolate options. The costs do vary depending on the Matcha Level selection, though prices tend to be around 340 to 550 yen for single scoops and 440 to 650 yen for double scoops. Thanks to the close location by Asakusa Sensoji Temple, those joining our fully-guided line of Cherry Blossom Japan Tours or Highlights Japan Tours can sample the rich matcha flavors while in Tokyo with Japan Deluxe Tours!
