matcha ceramics

We serve the Blend 100 matcha. It is life-filled vibrant green with a round umami-laden flavor without any bitterness. We currently serve it much like an espresso with a lovely crema achieved with a foaming wand. And in the context of our cuisine, the Blend 100 is a natural way to end the evening.
