Yum ‘cha’

At the Starbucks in LOFT at Shinsaibashi, Osaka, we tried a matcha latte, chai latte and an earl-grey-and-pear tart (earl grey flavoured filling and crust).

It was my first-ever matcha latte!! Why haven’t I tried it before????

This girl’s shopping bag was awesome.

The very best matcha latte is at Doutor !!

I love drinking tea in hotel rooms in Japan. You always get teabags of hojicha and o-cha and pretty teacups.

    OMG that tart sounds so fantastic! And the matcha latte doesn’t sound half bad either! ^o^

    This looks soooo yummy! I want to have matcha latte here too! And earl grey tart – How cool is that?!
    The shopping bag is funny.. I wonder if the mistakes are there on purpose?

    Sara Mari, the earl grey parts of the tart weren’t overly intense, the pear flavour was stronger. But I loved the concept 🙂

    This makes me want to go back to Japan so badly! I agree about Doutor, too. I’ve never had a better matcha latte!
