After our meal that's fit for a king at Paradise Dynasty, we strolled around the mall for a few minutes, then proceeded to have dessert / drinks at Tsujiri! 128154 It felt like I stepped into Matcha Heaven -- even the interiors are all matcha green! 128525

After much thought, I got the Tsujiri Milk Float (Php 220 - Medium), which has an ice blended matcha milk drink topped with more matcha goodness in the form of a delectable matcha soft serve! 128525 Ultimately, it is a wonderful answer to every matcha lover's dream. The soft serve had a stronger matcha taste, with that distinct bitterness of authentic matcha. The ice blended, on the other hand, was creamier and milder, because of the addition of milk. If it gets too bitter for you, you may mix the ice cream with the drink to tone it down. As for me, I'm perfectly content with just the soft serve. 128076 I'll probably just get that next time.

My sister got the Houjicha Milk Float (Php 195 - Small), which had a roasted Japanese green tea ice blended with milk, topped with the same matcha goodness. Since my mom is never a fan of matcha, I got the Red Bean Ice Blended drink (Php 175 - Large) for her. She told me it was very rich, so she loved it! 128525128149

Drinks and desserts here are bit pricey, but definitely worth the splurge. 128076 Oh, their servers are very attentive and helpful, too! The are great in recommending must-tries as well. Really commendable. 10024

Not a fan of matcha9996️ but wanted to try this 4+ star-rated dessert place, so I ordered their Chocolate Lava Cake (P230). As expected, molten chocolate oozed out of the warm and moist chocolate cake 128525 4/5

When I first came across Japanese cafe, Tsujiri in S Maison, Pasay, little did I know that they will have their soft opening the next day. I have met Tsujiri Philippines’ representative, Sean Ponce, and he later on invited me to visit Tsujiri to make a review about their place. So together with other foodies, we tried Tsujiri’s tea offerings on a sponsored visit.

Tsujiri apparently has been in Japan for 155 years already. It originated in Uji, a Japanese city south of Kyoto, which is popular for its shrines and temples. Tsujiri is a pioneer tea brand, and they proudly showcase their Uji matcha, alongside their Western-inspired desserts.

This cafe in upscale mall, S Maison, is actually dominated with greenery. They have plants decorating the place. As for their menu, Tsujiri has a variety of tea choices catering to those who have likely travelled Japan, and those who drink matchas on a regular basis.

We ordered their signature Tsujiri Ice Blended first. It had this bitter flavor, and a nice touch of sweetness to it. Well, for me, bitterness doesn’t make something, at all, better. Anyway, one may choose to add matcha ice cream or vanilla to make a Tsujiri Ice Blended float. This is good for those who would like an extra creaminess and flavor to their drink. I also suggest having this on a hot weather. Know that they also have ice cream on a cone here.

Here’s a little trivia for you: Matcha is a type of green tea, same as sencha, genmaicha, and houjicha, with the latter having this bold bitter flavor to it. This roasted green tea had this brown color and tinge of green.

Matchas are a good source of vitamins and minerals, like vitamins A and C, iron, potassium, and calcium, as well as protein, L-theanine (amino acid), and fiber. This tea also has lesser caffeine, and has the pigment, chlorophyll, which helps in detoxifying the body, resulting to clear skin, a healthy heart, and normal blood circulation. Matchas also has the antioxidant, cathechin, which helps slow the aging process and fight cancer.

So, we also got to try their O-Matcha. According to them at Tsujiri, they use fresh, quality tea leaves for this drink. It consists mostly of powdered matcha and milk, in hot water, which will be mixed together using a whisk. Their wait staff will do the mixing for you. This is definitely a must-have on your visit.

We also had their yuzu citron, a drink with Japanese citrus fruit flavor and milk on it.

As for their sweet offerings, my favorite was their Tsujiri sundae which consisted of roasted brown rice, red bean paste, chestnut, shiratama (mochi), and the Japanese traditional cherry blossom rice cracker, Sakura Monaka. It was a cup full of amazing flavors and textures. I’d say that this one was well-thought of given the great combination of its ingredients.

Another sweet thing from Tsujiri wordpress that most of us liked was their chiffon cake parfait sundae. The creamy ice cream complemented the flavors of the chiffon cake and sweet red bean.

I also suggest that you try Tsujiri’s shaved ice. This tower of sweetness is good for four people. We weren’t actually able to try it out. They’re available in two flavors – Uji Sunrise and Uji Sunset. Uji Sunrise is shaved ice with matcha syrup, condensed milk, red bean paste, and mochi. Uni Sunset, on the other hand, has black sugar syrup instead of milk in it.

As for Tsujiri’s cakes, I love their citronne matcha flavored one. It’s a fluffy green cake with luscious matcha bits and cream, and a citrusy glaze. I only had a slice of it but they also offer whole cakes.

All in all, we had an amazing experience at Tsujiri having drowned ourselves in the goodness of their healthy drinks.

If you want to have a taste of Japan, look no further and visit Tsujiri. Discover the goodness of their matcha offerings.

Tsujiri @ S Maison

The hype was real when it was announced that Tsujiri will finally open their first store in the Philippines. A lot were really curious and excited, especially us MATCHA LOVERS. I mean who wouldn't right? It's Tsujiri one of the oldest Matcha shops in Japan.

The menu was mostly desserts and drinks. And it was still their soft opening when i tried it, so not all options in the menu were available. I tried the Tsujiri Sundae (P285) which is matcha flavored (of course!). It is so cute because of all the toppings like the Sakura which is like a wafer, a plain white mochi, a water chestnut i think? (haha!) sweet red bean paste at the middle and rice crispies at the bottom. I really like it though. The flavor of their matcha plus the milky taste of ice cream the sweet kick of azuki (red bean) and that crunchy feeling from the rice crispies all at once.

I also tried their O-Matcha in cold (P130) which is just a regular matcha drink. There's nothing special really, but if your a matcha lover you'll love it's authentic flavor.

All in all, I really like Tsujiri. Especially now that they have expanded their menu. The flavor really feels authentic but it is just too pricey if you are going too base on how big the serving is. Well just think that you are paying for the authentic matcha taste and not for it's size. (hahaha!)

FINALLY!!! This place is a must for a matcha addict like yours truly. At late afternoon on a weekend sunday the line was bearable, i was giddy excited so i forgot how long i queue up but i think the real reason that the line is taking up much time coz most of the people dont know what they are goin to order until its their turn. I guess no menu on top that will help people decide.

Anyway im torn from ordering their matha float or sundae but then i went with their sundae instead. The softee was really good, chestnut was good as it has same taste with the one at kyoto, rice ball was partly frozen, i was taken aback by their red beans, too sweet.. im pretty sure its locally sourced. It kinda dissipitate the bitterness of matcha which is not good IMO. And theres rice pop at the bottom which is.. some may like some might not.. me i didnt like it. And the flower cracker, it was hollow at the back, back at JP or TW is has red bean sandwiches in the middle, i was abit disappointed with that.

This is another example of international brand that is brought to manila with slightly higher prices than its international counterparts... 128529 but then i think its the best matcha softee in the metro but next time im goin for their softee only or float. 128154

Since I like my drinks hot, I had their O-Matcha Cappuccino of course! I was just curious as to how they turned matcha into a cappuccino consistency. The result? It was GOOD. Heartwarmingly good to be exact 128539 I liked the foam and that pop of white color in the middle against the rich green base. The drink’s texture was very smooth too. I felt warm and giddy after. As much as this was good, their cold drinks are good as well. Their Tsujiri Milk was very smooth.

It’s impossible not to see this dessert in the Instagram rounds. Out of all their offers, their Tsujiri Sundae is their most photogenic dessert. Just look at that beaut! It’s beautifully layered that makes it really cute and IG-post worthy. In terms of taste, it delivered with high scores! All the components here just worked together. This is available in vanilla as well but really, just please get the matcha one. 🙂

Do you ever get that feeling of wandering eyes? And then when something catches your eye, you instantly zoom in on it, and never wander off? Yeah, I got that with their Matcha Lava Cake. I was curious as to how they infused the matcha inside. I was curious too on how sweet this would be. Surprisingly, it wasn’t sweet at all. It had this slight sweetness to it that balanced well with the whole cake and cream atop. Perfect to pair either with a hot or cold drink here 🙂

Yep, I got to have real matcha experience here. They have a multitude of matcha offers that I wanted to actually try them all on that day. But alas, the day has to end and so does my wallet. Hahaha. I do hope they expand to more branches. I bet non-matcha folks would like this one too. They have non-matcha offers that I bet are just as good too. So if you’re having that mad matcha craving or just want to end on a sweet note, add this to your list of dessert places. 128521

But the two seemed to enjoy their matcha date 128154

I had high expectations, but, thanks for the experience Tsujiri. 128513

It was the first day of class, and as a tradition, my bff and I will go out! Yay. But since the schedule was shifted from morning to afternoon, I suggested dinner.
We headed to MOA not knowing where we should eat. Then she mentioned the 155-year old japanese brand we both barely remember the name.
We headed to S. Maison and being first timers, we do not know where to go. Few minutes after wandering, we found Tsujiri, just beside BLK15. I was itching to try BLK last week so I was having the confusion whether to try BLK or Tsujiri. But we proceeded with what we both love - matcha.
We. Do. Not. Know. What. To. Order.
We spent around fifteen minutes reading reviews and looking for the best dessert but it still left us clueless. I suggested we go to the counter and make spontaneous decision there or just take recommendation from the staff.
We asked the staff what's their best seller. Being an awkward person is difficult, you know. A crew suggested the sundae, sabi pa niya, "pag natikman niyo yan, maam, lilipad kayo sa sarap." I laughed. He also recommended to try their lava cakes. But too pricey talaga and I thought it will not be worth the price. He knew it's our first time so he helped us lighten the mood. Plus points. Hahaha
He gave us a soft serve on cone for tasting. Proof daw na masarap ung matcha. Yes, it is!
So we ordered the Sundae and Shaved ice.
Both are pricey but good. I loved the little mochi balls and the red beans, although I think the red beans were too much for a single serve. Especially in the sundae.
While eating, the crew asked us how it went. He asked if it was too bitter for us.
Honestly, we both love Matcha... the ice cream experience is good but matcha drinks (in general) are waaaay better. The shaved ice was great too! Halo-halo style and it's not really easy to finish it when you're not into too much ice. But since it's matcha, I managed to finish.
When I saw the lava cake on their tv screen, I instantly regretted not ordering the lava cake. ☹️
I was thinking about recklessly spend more for the lava cake but then I remember we haven't had our dinner yet. So we left the place with happy faces.
We used to have dessert after dinner until we realize... who needs dinner? Charot.
We're thinking of coming back for their drinks and lava cake. I hope it won't disappoint.

Matcha here is LEGIT 128154 I will definitely be coming back to try the other offerings! But that Tsujiri Sundae, oh man, best matcha soft serve I've had. The cherry blossom cracker was the "cherry on top". And the hot matcha latte... gosh I think every other matcha latte in Manila will start to disappoint me moving forward. They got that perfect balance of bitterness, creaminess, sweetness, and matcha flavor that would be hard to replicate.

Their sundae & ice blended are heavenly for any matcha lover but not for those whose hearts aren't for matcha.

Their shaved ice was tall & was only placed in a relatively small bowl. Quite difficult to dig in. What we did was remove some ice & placed on one of their trays. Be patient in digging. That's how you'll find the hidden gem 128521

Place was rather small which isn't good news if you plan to order their shaved ice as it is only available for dine-in. We almost didn't order it as there was no seat available. Glad that before the cashier was able to end our transaction, there was a vacant table

After envying almost anyone who has tried Tsujiri for weeks, I finally had the chance to try this store that's located conveniently close to my office!

Tsujiri is the newest addition to the establishments trying to meet the people's increasing demand for a healthier after-meal treat, and of course, the matcha craze.

Honestly, I wanted to try almost one of each of the categories on their menu, but there's just too many and we (me and my cousin) won't be able to finish them. So, we ordered their Tsujiri Sundae (best seller), their yuzu is citrus float and their matcha lava cake.

|Tsujiri Sundae P285
Matcha ice cream lined with roasted brown rice, with a layer of red bean paste, and topped with shiratama (mochi balls), chestnut and belgian waffle (because the pink, flower cracker wasn't available). I actually didn't find anything special about their sundae. The roasted brown rice was also the one thing I hated about it. I guess a little of it would have been okay, or if it was evenly distributed in the dessert, then that's fine. I just didn't appreciate having too much of it with too little ice cream left. It's tasted a bit off.

|Yuzu Citron Float P200
We liked the citrus drink. It tasted a bit different to the usual lemon drinks we have. It had the perfect balance of sweet and citrus.

|Matcha Lava Cake P250
Sufficiently (close to moist lol) moist matcha lava cake with a thin matcha chocolate disc and vanilla soft serve on top. We loved this one. Each ingredient kept the other in balance, so make sure to have a bit of everything in one bite.

Oh, and their matcha soft serve had the right, creamy consistency for me. It was also bitter, which is what I always look for in a matcha dish.

I'm a bit reluctant to spend money on any of Tsujiri's products again (because they're pricey), but part of me still wants to come back to try the others. I guess I'll be having the cake (available on weekends), choux creme, and latte next time 128517

Reigning for 155 years of anything matcha (and counting), Tsujiri has now landed in the Philippines! I visited early this May while they were still on their soft opening and I was amazed by the loooooong line 128563 I actually felt bad for BLK (who's neighbors with Tsujiri) for a minute then but I did think the craze would die down eventually. Truth be told, I was right. I visited two weeks later during the same time on a weekend and there was no line.
 
Anyway, on to the review. I ordered the Shiratama Sundae [P265] 1108811088110881108811088️ and loved it! The ice cream had a very strong Matcha flavor just the way I like it and the mochi balls complimented it very well. It was really fun to chew on while I enjoyed authentic Matcha flavors dancing on my tongue. Although I did found the prices to be high considering the serving size. The cup was even smaller than mcdo’s sundaes. On the other hand, I saw the serving of their shaved ice and it was huge! I might try that next time.
 
Other than desserts, Tusjiri also offers cold and hot drinks. My friend got the O-Matcha [P130] and with one look, I knew it wasn’t worth the price. The serving was too little. I could finish it in two gulps 128528

I liked the overall ambiance of the place. It's had a modern Japanese cafe style to it while still maintaining it's authenticity. It had a small space. Maybe five tables for four people each at most. But like BLK, people who purchase from Tsujiri usually just buy and go.

Now, let’s talk about service. I think it’s because of their soft opening and the long queue outside that the staff seem flustered and slow. It took ten minutes for one sundae to be served.

Overall, I think Tsujiri is worth the try but I’m still debating if it’s worth the return.

Tsujiri is a Japanese matcha brand from Kyoto, Japan. Established in 1860. The 155 year old matcha store has several branches worldwide from Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Canada, Malaysia, Australia, United Kingdom and recently, in the Philippines, which Tsujiri had a Grand Launch this month in S'Maison Mall, SM MOA Complex, Pasay City.

For Php285.00, I got the bestseller Tsujiri Sundae. Aside from matcha soft serve it has red bean, mochi, roasted rice crisp and edible sakura flower. Gorgeously served and presented to me.

"Seriously, I find it expensive. But once you've tasted it "Japan-japan na yung lasa". I like the combination of red bean, roasted rice crisp and matcha soft serve. The ingredients compliment each other. Masarap!"

The first time i saw the post about Tsujiri opening its first branch in Manila made me sick.

Matcha Frenzy (noun)
- a rare psychological disorder that affects people who like matcha.
- brings uncontrollable hallucinations about anything and everything matcha
- people affected by this disorder are not dangerous. They are sociable but tends to speak Matcha every now and then.

I made that up. Har-Har

Tsujiri! What took you so long??? Impatience aside, i was really really excited when i heard that they are finally opening their doors to Manila's Matcha deprived. I ignored the heat and made my way to S Maison.

The space they occupy is on the second level (beside BLK 513). I didn't have the chance to scrutinize the interior as there were no seats available and there was a line when i arrived. One thing is for sure, the space they occupy is small, i count 5 tables (give or take). I guess they didn't anticipate that there's a sizable amount of matcha enthusiasts in Manila.

The crew managed the line in an efficient manner. One is assigned to get the orders, present the piece of paper on the counter. It took me massive amounts of self-control not to order a lot. I finally settled on one of their bestsellers.

Tsujiri Matcha Sundae (Php 285). This beautiful cup comprises of matcha soft serve, shiratama ball, chesnut, roasted rice crispies, red bean paste and a pink sakura wafer on top. The matcha soft serve is creamy and smooth but lacks the matcha kick i am looking for. It was good, nonetheless. The red bean paste reeks of sweeteners, i guess this overpowered the matcha in a way. I am not a fan of the rice crispies at the bottom as the flavor is too strong, it tastes a little bitter and overpowers the matcha. I love the chesnut and the shiratama ball though! And the sakura wafer? It is pink and tasteless.

I guess i have to customize my sundae on my next visit, skip the rice crispies, less red bean paste. Or better yet, stick with the matcha soft serve.

I am still giving them a five for making my matcha dreams come true.
