Iced Japanese Teas at Wagyu x Japan Food Town

A refreshing iced green tea is one of the best ways to cool down in the summer heat. Recently, the Senbird team attended Japan Fes’ WAGYU x Japan Food Town in New York City’s Times Square and had the pleasure of meeting many fellow Japanese tea enthusiasts and share our iced green teas, including our matcha oat milk latte!

Iced Green Teas: Sencha and Hojicha

During the event, we had the opportunity to serve our best selling green teas, which included Hime Sencha (Green Tea) and Mai Hojicha (Roasted Green Tea). Hime sencha has a natural umami sweetness from matcha, producing a flavorful cold brewed green tea or mizudashi sencha (水出し煎茶). In contrast, hojicha's toasty caramel flavor comes out best steeped in hot water. For this reason, our hojicha was brewed fresh on-site, cooled down, and served over iced.

Moreover, together with the iced green teas, we also served a creamy Matcha Oat Milk Latte featuring our Otome Matcha and Oatly’s oat milk. Because of the subtle sweetness of the oat milk, it perfectly complements the rich matcha, making it an energizing pick-me-up latte for any matcha lover. 

Matcha Chocolate Fondue

Together with the iced teas, attendees enjoyed a Senbird-exclusive Matcha Chocolate Fondue, made-to-order with fresh fruits. Of course, created with Otome Matcha, a premium matcha green tea from Kyoto, heavy whipping cream, and the finest Belgian white chocolate, the matcha chocolate served as a creamy dip for fruits.
