Alberta is about to become uncharacteristically green this December when a cult-favourite all-matcha cafe touches down in Calgary for the first time ever. Tsujiri is a Japanese brand that's been in the matcha business for 158 years. They announced their new location and according to their Instagram stories, their planned opening date is Sunday, December 8. Calgary's matcha cafe is going to paint the town green.
That means you could get your hands on their all-green treats soon and it's a surprisingly refreshing twist on your typical holiday treats. Plus, the bright green colour is so festive.
Their menu has high-quality teas, matcha lattes and matcha cappuccinos that are the perfect warming pick-me-up on a cold day.
Plus, their matcha shaved ice, parfaits, floats and ice cream are the ultimate decadent matcha treat. It's a good alternative if you're tired of your standard bubble tea, too.
Expect light-as-air matcha desserts like cream puffs, mochi, cheesecakes and layered crepe cakes on their menu, too.
You can also get traditional Japanese-inspired treats like puffy matcha daifuku. Indulge in flavours like black sesame, yuzu and houjicha.
If you're a big fan of matcha, then this new all-matcha cafe is going to be your new favourite spot in Calgary.
Alberta already has one Tsujiri location in Edmonton, but this will be their first in Calgary.
Tsujiri also has locations in B.C. and Ontario and is planning to open even more across Canada in places like Montreal and Halifax.
All of their matcha is sourced directly from Japan and grown on farms in the Uji and Yame regions.
Far from a bitter powder that you'd get at a chain coffee shop, their matcha is simply heavenly.
The plan is for the Calgary location to open by Sunday, December 8 so pick up some matcha treats to fuel the rest of your holiday shopping.
Address: 205 16 Ave. NE., Calgary, AB
