Review: Amausaan Uji Matcha

When I was bored at work one day, I was on blogto looking at new cafes and restaurants to try (literally my favourite hobby to do at work, lol) and came across this all matcha Japanese sweet dessert cafe. 

Amausaan Uji Matcha is a Japanese dessert chain specialized in sweets snacks and drinks made from premium matcha green tea. 

It is located in the heart of Chinatown in Toronto and is also the first location in North America and the largest cafe of the brand worldwide.

They had this seasonal sweet potato drinks and desserts and I decided to try the sweet potato latte (cold) and it was pretty good.


At the front of the cafe, there is a wall of wooden wish/message boards on display similar to the ones you see at shrines and temples in Japan. Not sure if you have to purchase them and how much it cost to get one.

Along the wall to the right passed the wooden wish boards leading to the table seating area at the back, there is a line of lantern lights with different Japanese themed pictorials.

There are two sakura trees at the seating table area that is used to for taking pictures. Apparently you could rent a yukata to wear and take pictures at the cafe. I asked how much it was to rent one and it cost $30/per person per hour. Quite expensive! So I decided to not rent one. 

The interior design fo the place of the cafe is quite authentic Japanese style that makes you feel like you are eating at a Japanese dessert place in Japan. It is also quite spacious with lots of seats and tables to sit. There is also free wifi and electric outlets that it would make a perfect quiet place to have some dessert and bring your laptop to study or do work. 

My friend got a matcha mille crepe dusted with matcha powder along with green tea served in a beautiful tea pot.

I ordered an iced cold matcha latte and the fading matcha cheeses cake with 4 layers of matcha with a milk layer at the top and oreo cookie base at the bottom.

On another visit, I ordered the mix Shiritama Sundae with matcha and vanilla served with mochi balls and red bean as well some waffle cookie bits at the bottom of the bowl and it was absolutely mouth watery tasty. The ice cream was very soft and creamy.

Overall, I'd recommend coming here for the food and it's a great hangout place to chat with friends and enjoy some yummy delicious desserts. If you are someone who is a fan of anything milk or matcha-flavoured, then this is definitely a place you should check out.
