The 7 Levels of Matcha Ice Cream
So, what is these seven levels of matcha rave all about? In simple layman terms, these are the different levels of the matcha flavour in the ice cream. Level one being the common and mildest, and level seven being the most potent and rich match flavour.
If you are a matcha or green tea lover, the bitterness is what you are after. For the hard-core, I recommend you go straight and try level 7; for those neither here or there, just try the level four or five. But for those traveling in groups, I recommend you to try one of each level and share the ice cream among yourselves.
Apart from the 7 levels, there is also few other ice cream colors like brown and white in the match bid. They are actually Hoji-cha, a special roasted green tea flavor and Miruku or milk flavour. These are for those who want something different from the common matcha.
How much to pay for the matcha ice cream?
Well, as you already know, good matcha ice cream is not cheap but worth the price. They are sold in cones and cups, and the cups resemble traditional green tea cups, which is quite a nice touch.
The level 1 to level 6 matcha ice cream costs:
- Single Cup: ¥370 – Cone ¥390
- Double Cup: ¥470 – Cone ¥490
The level 7 matcha gelato costs:
- Single Cup: ¥560 – Cone ¥580
- Double Cup: ¥830 – Cone ¥850
Honestly, I highly recommend this for any ice cream lover and if you are a matcha lover, you should try the double as it is much cheaper too. You can also order a mix as well.
What else can I buy here?
Apart from the world’s strongest matcha gelato ice cream, you can also buy other matcha products. For example, there are matcha chocolates, matcha daifuku sweets, matcha cookies and of course matcha green tea.
If you have a relative or friend who is a matcha lover, this would be a good souvenir to get for them. At least it is something authentic and different from your regular Japanese Kit-Kat souvenirs.
