Yukimoe-Parfait with Deluxe Powdered Green Tea Waffle Cone Is Very Tasty -Gyokusuien in Sapporo-
August 14th, 2015
Gyokusuien (玉翠園) is a long-established tea wholesale dealer in Chuo ward, Sapporo city and was founded in 1933. There is a building near Sapporo TV Tower (札幌テレビ塔). This is, to all appearance, tea wholesale dealer, but I heard that Yukimoe-Parfait (雪萌パフェ) was tasty and visited here on weekdays. When I came, there were 9 visitors. I expected that there was a tea room at another place because the store was not large, but it was ordered at a store and was eaten at a store. It was interesting.
Yukimoe-Parfait is a powdered green tea ice cream (抹茶アイス) used a lot of powdered green tea which matured in a storehouse for a long term. It is used paste containing pieces of azuki beans skin produced in Hokkaido, roasted brown rice and home-made waffle cone using powdered green tea, it is parfait reflecting an image of Hokkaido's snow and nature and a sprouting of fresh green. Yukimoe-Parfait had 2 kinds, regular size and deluxe size, and I ordered the Yukimoe-Parfait with deluxe powdered green tea waffle cone (雪萌えパフェのデラックス抹茶コーン) at a cashier.
The deluxe powdered green tea waffle cone is limited to 30 pieces. It seemed to be sold out almost in the morning, but I was able to eat last one on that day. By the way, an owner seems to bake deluxe powdered green tea waffle cones in the early morning. It seems to become brown if he do not use abundant powdered green tea. It is an evidence that powdered green tea is used abundantly to be green. The waffle cone was jus right sweetness, and even this was tasty enough. The ice cream was additive-free and melted easily. The sweetness of the ice cream went well with bitterness of the powdered green tea, and it was very good. After having finished eating, a roasted green tea was served freely.
