Enjoy the luxurious taste and aroma of high-quality matcha (green tea) through our authentic matcha desserts using the finest Uji matcha (prized matcha cultivated in Uji, Kyoto) carefully selected by a master matcha taster. ★
An authentic matcha sweets pâtisserie founded 60 years ago by a long-established tea shop in Hiroshima.
The master matcha taster Haruhide Morita is thrice renowned as the best in Japan. He carefully picks the highest quality Uji matcha specifically for “Cha-no-wa”.
Known as "kintenkaku," this well-balanced matcha excels in all three cornerstones that constitute an exquisite matcha: color, taste, and aroma. A tea of this high caliber can be enjoyed as “koicha” (an exceptionally dark opaque green tea).
Additionally, we are under the guidance of two great advisors who supervise our recipes; the seasoned pastry chef Yoshihiro Yamakawa who is famed as the first chef of the confectionery shop “Anténor,” and the award-winning pastry chef Shotaro Hanaguchi who won 3rd place in a group of up-and-coming pastry chefs and 2nd place at the Coup de Monde, a world cup in Western confectionery.
Please enjoy our luxurious sweets made with high-quality genuine matcha produced by masters of their craft at “Cha-no-wa”.
