You’d probably find some Green tea flavored ice cream in where you live now. But, is that real Green tea? It’s called “Maccha” in Japanese. Remember that Green tea is one of the Shizuoka’s specialties and here at NANAYA, they use our specialty, the “REAL MACCHA”. And NANAYA has the “strongest Maccha” in the world, according to the sign that is set at the store.
They have 7 different kinds of Maccha ice cream, in strength. The number goes up, the Maccha flavor gets stronger. You can see the differences in colors as well. The strongest Maccha ice cream actually cost a bit more than others. The pic on the left is No.6. It really does have real, strong, Maccha flavor.
It is not artificial flavor. I’d like you to try Japanese, Shizuoka’s real Maccha ice cream and compare with the one you have tasted in where you live. Maccha is bitter, but these ice cream isn’t just bitter, it’s also got rich ice cream flavor as well! NANAYA also sells some real green tea products at the store.

During the summer time, they serve “Kakigori”, shaved ice. It was a tall parfait looking Kakigori. It has some “Maccha” green tea ice cream on top of the Kakigori, a little ball of “Anko”, red sweet bean paste, and their original “Mochi” sweets called “Marifuku”. Well, it was really really good!! If you love “Maccha” and sweet stuff, then why don’t you try this.
Also their “Houjicha Kakigori” was really good. Hojicha is roasted green tea, so it has full of roasting aroma. And very refreshing! This one also has a little ball of “Anko”. They also have green tea parfait and lots more of sweets and foods. Do check out their website.(link down below)
