Kissako's Hot Matcha Latte
'Kissako' is a Japanese Zen term, or form of greeting that means to drink tea. The cafe serves authentic teas from Uji City, Kyoto, and Shizuoka, Japan, as well as Horiguchi Coffee, with single origin available. Green tea, aside from being delicious and flexible from hot to cold beverages and as ingredient to enhance desserts, is packed with many nutritional and cleansing benefits. To soothe and quench your thirst, they have beverages like Chocolate Hōjicha served iced or hot and Kissako Matcha Latte served iced or hot. A must-try is their authentic Jo Sencha (P190) hot tea which arrives on your table with a timer and a thermometer to give you a precise and complex, Zen-like tea experience.
