On Monday, July 26th, Hachiya 八屋, a Japanese tea café operated by Faith Network, Inc. based on the concept of "reimagining Japanese culture for the modern age" added a new, refreshing dessert item to its menu, perfect for the hot months of summer.

"Citrus Yogurt Cream and Hōjicha Shaved Ice" will be available for a limited time, while supplies last.

Citrus Yogurt Cream and Hōjicha Shaved Ice

"Citrus Yogurt Cream and Hōjicha Shaved Ice" Japanese Tea Set

This kakigōri (Japanese shaved ice) combines a refreshing "citrus yogurt cream" made with creamy yogurt and fresh oranges and Hachiya's hand-crafted citrus fruit syrup for a cool and summery dessert. Topped with hōjicha (roasted green tea) powder, honey, and lemon slices macerated in syrup, it's a delightful dessert as visually appealing as it aromatic. The flavors change as you eat it. Hachiya would like to invite you to experience this pleasant surprise at their store.

In addition, a Japanese tea set menu is also available for eat-in customers, which pairs this shaved ice with a cup of hōjicha, one of Hachiya's most popular Japanese teas.

About Hachiya

Hachiya is a Japanese tea cafe based on the concept of "reimagining Japanese culture in the modern age." Hachiya uses only tea leaves from carefully selected tea farms and focuses on natural Japanese ingredients to serve as sweeteners: for example, wasanbon sugar for their tea lattes and white bean paste for their smoothies.

In June 2021, Hachiya reopened in the Sendagaya neighborhood of Tokyo, with an eat-in space and a new menu that includes onigiri rice balls and anmitsu (sweetened red bean paste), both of which are designed to go well with Japanese tea. Hachiya will continue to offer new ways to enjoy tea, such as a hand-crafted cold tea soda, in which cold brewed Japanese tea is directly carbonated on premises.
