Fruit Salad

A huge departure from the norm! I am typically a matcha purist but decided to shake things up and have a blended blueberry, almond milk and matcha latte. It was fun and tasty but I might prefer the classics. The sweet is from Tugi, one of my favourite places in Fukuoka. Everything they do is breath-taking. This one is a dried pineapple, jasmine and smooth red bean paste wrapped up in a little package.

It’s hard to beat their treats. I couldn’t help myself and got this funny little guy! Those are little rosemary sprigs popping out and is filled with rosemary paste! It was one of the best and most unique wagashi I’ve ever had. But, I think I always say that when I go there.
