Try Gold Leaf-Covered Matcha Gelatos For A Lavish Spin To Your Usual Ice Cream Cone

It’s not every day we’re served dishes sprinkled with gold leaf, which is predominantly used in festive and often expensive dishes in Japan. For tea producer Oyaizu Seicha, however, there’s always a cause for celebration, which is why they’re offering luxurious, high-class gelatos at their main shop in Shizuoka City.

Customers can get a taste of 7 different flavors at Oyaizu Seicha: Classic Rich Matcha, Creamy Matcha Latte, Fresh Honyama Green Tea, Floral Jasmine Tea, Darjeeling Tea, Roasted Green Tea and Rum Raisin, and Rich Vanilla. Of these flavors, Classic Rich Matcha is by far the most popular, and has been the one to be given the honor of being topped with a lavish layer of gold leaf coating.

Like much of the gold leaf used around the world, the gold leaf used for this extra special gelato is produced in Kanazawa. Since gold leaf is flavorless, the generous coating adds an extravagant touch to this Italian-style ice cream without affecting its delicious taste of bittersweet goodness. Customers should be prepared to get it all over their lips, though, but who doesn't want to experience licking legit gold off their lips?

One cone of the gold leaf-covered Classic Rich Matcha costs 900 yen (US$8) at the main store of Oyaizu Seicha. As one of the top producers of tea in Japan, Shizuoka Prefecture is a great destination for all lovers of tea, and now there's all the more reason to visit with these gold leaf matcha gelatos.
