Japan is crazy about matcha. As the Nation that discovered it to the world, they even have specialized shops in Tokyo. And, there’s one store where you can choose an ice cream based on the intensity of green tea flavor.

Matcha is praised for its health benefits and great taste, but there are always those who want something just a little more extra. For them, a new trend has just appeared – the gold leaf matcha soft serve ice cream.

You can try it at Premium Matcha Stan Maiko in Yurakucho and it looks so amazing! They add a sheet of gold leaf around the ice cream for the unique effect. Instagram likes guaranteed!

The price of their regular ice cream, without the gold, is around $7, but with the gold leaf, the price goes to around $11. A few other flavors are available besides matcha.
