Matcha Green Tea Affogato | Simplest and most blissful east-west fusion dessert combining the prized Japanese matcha green tea with Italy's finest gelato.
Notes
I prefer to use Ryu Mei organic green tea powder from Kyoto as it dissolves very easily even in cold water, and I like the rich green tea taste that is not too bitter.
I like to use Haagan Daz vanilla ice cream.
To make it vegan, I use soy milk from Soy Dream Vanilla Enriched and soy ice cream from So Delicious Dairy Free Soy Milk Creamy Vanilla.
The dark chocolate matcha truffles are from Mitsuwa Japanese grocery store, or you can get it here from amazon.com.
