It was crowded when we got there and had to wait for an open table. They asked us if we wouldn't mind sitting in their small tea room. We didn't even know they had a private tea room, but we were more than happy to have a small room all to ourselves. We sat around a beautiful wooden table, which literally looked like a slice from a tree trunk.
We ordered two individual sized cakes and a green tea to share. I can’t recall the tea we had but they bring out a teapot, a tea cup and a large bowl. He explained that once you pour in the hot water into the teapot with the tea leaves, you then pour it out into the large bowl so that the green tea doesn’t get too bitter. Then you pour it into the individual cups to drink. It also came with a small plate of two rice cakes that were floating on a pool of dark honey. Aren’t the teapot and dishes so pretty?
We got the green tea cheesecake tiramisu and the green tea cake. I think everyone liked the green cake the best. I can't recall which is which. Sorry! I think this was the green tea cake with a big dollop of green tea caramel on top. Not only was it aesthetically pleasing but quite tasty as well. We gobbled this up so fast, I don't even remember what was inside.
