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!

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.
