If you want to have sweets in Kyoto, these are the places to go to: old and established tea houses with classic parfaits and sweets
They use Tsujiri’s matcha, and the parfait has a mild taste; it is not too sweet, but neither is it too bitter, it’s just right. This tea house is so popular there is often a line in front of it.
Among these, the most popular one is this “raw tea leaves jelly,” which is served in a cooled bamboo receptacle and contains bitter matcha ice cream, matcha jelly, sticky rice balls, and red bean paste. This is a great cooling dessert for summers with a refreshing look.
