NANA’S GREEN TEA CAFE AT JCUBE – AUTHENTIC JAPANESE GREEN TEA WITH A TWIST

By

Hi there

Was at JCube the other day to check out some shops and saw this chic looking “coffee joint” that called Nana’s Green Tea.

Took a closer look and actually this is a green tea joint 🙂 The place exudes a very zen like ambience and create this little space where you can just sit and enjoy the original Matcha green tea which they import from Japan.

What attracted us was actually how new the place is and 90% of the crew are Japanese! That’s quite impressive, given it is a cafe and most of the crew are Japanese, that’s just show how serious they are in this business.

If you want to check out their menu and price list, you can also check it out from this post. 🙂

Anyway as we were running out of time that day, we decided to get it on the go instead. 🙂

While we were making our purchases, the staff were still trying their hands on the system so we were chatting with them along the way.

Apparently Nana’s green tea is quite popular in japan, they have 50 outlets japan & 3 in shanghai and Singapore J cube is their first venture in Singapore and.

They recommended us to try their Galette which originates from Bretagne Region in France. Basically it is make of buckwheat flour, milk, eggs and salt and is kind of a fusion food in Japan as they concoct different creations.

Galette is made by baking thinly sliced dough in a round shape and with added toppings, it can be a very filling meal itself. As it is very healthy and nutritious, it is very popular in Japan. The staff also told us not to be deceived by the portion because it is really filling for one serving. Guess I will find out next time. 🙂

I got the thin matcha green tea which comes with some syrup while the others got the matcha latte. They liked their green tea latte a lot as their drink is beautifully infused with green tea essence. You know how sometimes you get a green tea latte, it can be either overly sweet or bitter, not a very smooth concoction, here probably the Japanese do it the best. It was of a right balance.

Thin Matcha Green Tea

For mine, as it does not have any milky flavor, it really boils down to the actual matcha flavor, it does not have any bitter green tea powdery aftertaste but tasted a little blend, then I suddenly remember I forgot to add in the syrup!

After adding half of it, my drink turned out to be one of the best green tea beverage I have ever tried, very close to those I get in Japan indeed! Yuppie, now there is a proper joint for me if I have cravings for green tea 🙂

They also have a sweets menu and if you are a green tea dessert fans, you will not want to miss it. 🙂
