The hunger-enticing smell of Bake’s freshly baked cheese tarts continues to fill the Tenjin Chikagai shopping arcade, attracting long lines of customers. And now there’s something new to try. Limited edition matcha cheese tarts (¥330 per tart) will be on sale in the Tenjin branch from June 1 to July 31. The delicious treats are made with matcha from Ippodo, a well-established green tea specialist in Kyoto. The matcha is mixed into warm, fresh cream to draw out the blend of sweet, sour, and umami flavors that exist inside high quality tea leaves. The crispy, buttery cookie dough casing is the perfect match for the freshly baked tarts’ thick, creamy filling, and subtle white chocolate undertone.
