This pudding is topped with such a nicely textured foamed Matcha!!
It looks like real Matcha served at a tea ceremony!
First, the aroma of Matcha hit my nose.
I wonder how they make foam stay on top of the pudding without it going flat.
The dessert consists of three layers, the foamy Matcha on top, then the Matcha pudding and then red bean paste on the bottom.
Uji Matcha from Tsujiriichi Honten was used in this dessert. The red bean paste was made of special Kitaroman red beans from Hokkaido.
The Matcha foam was so fluffy, which it should be since Fuwa Fuwa mean’s fluffy in Japanese and that’s the name of this dessert, Fuwa Fuwa Matcha pudding. It was a new texture on dessert for me. The pudding was so creamy as well.
There was an abundance of red bean paste on the bottom. The bitterness gained from high quality Matcha and the sweet red bean created a perfect harmony.
The best way to eat this is to dig from the bottom and eat the layers together.
Experience a trinity of texture and flavor!
