Matcha Tiramisu

This is one of the Tiramisu desserts in Japan that is very famous on social media, especially Instagram. This dessert blew up on the Instagram explore page, and there are many videos reviewing this dessert on Youtube. This delicious take on the classic Tiramisu is made with Morihan matcha produced in Uji, an area of Kyoto famous for it's green tea production!

The fresh mascarpone cheese mixed with the luxurious matcha powder just melts in your mouth. It's irresistible! This dessert can be found at the specialty matcha cafe, Maccha House cafe, just outside of Tokyo in neighboring prefectures Saitama and Chiba. It is definitely a must try!

Starbucks Tiramisu Frappucino

Starbucks Japan is known for releasing an array of specialty flavors and seasonal drinks only available in Japan. Come spring in Japan, without fail Starbucks Japan always releases drinks with cherry blossom flavors. Similarly, this spring Starbucks Japan released a tiramisu flavored drink as well! Starbucks first released a white chocolate and coffee Tiramisu Frappuccino back in 2013, however, that version contained cookies and white chocolate brownie pieces. Starbucks recently brought the tiramisu flavor back to the Frappuccino, and this time, it's closer to the original dessert ingredients. We're only hoping they continue with the Tiramisu craze and release another next year! Speaking of yummy Starbucks drink flavors, take this quiz to find out which flavor best suits your personality!
