Winter’s Delights at Nana’s Green Tea: A Culinary Journey

Winter has descended upon Nana’s Green Tea, the revered Japanese café brand renowned for its exquisite matcha and green tea delicacies.

As the temperatures drop, the establishment unveils a new set lunch menu that not only showcases its signature savoury delights but also introduces the heartwarming aromas of cinnamon to its inaugural venture in Hong Kong.

This culinary exploration brings forth two delectable seasonal specials – a luxurious parfait and a velvety smooth tea latte – both infused with the sweet and spicy notes of Sri Lankan cinnamon. Additionally, a sumptuous seafood and rice dish, inspired by Japan’s snowy white winter, makes its debut on the menu.

Capturing Essence: Cinnamon-infused Winter Specials

The Winter Specials at Nana’s Green Tea masterfully blend the aromatic essence of Sri Lankan cinnamon with roasted hojicha, a traditional Japanese green tea sourced from Kyoto.

The hojicha contributes roasted chocolate and nutty undertones that harmonize seamlessly with the sweet, woody, and citrusy notes of cinnamon. This union creates a robust and invigorating winter treat, setting the stage for an unforgettable dining experience.

Apple Pie Parfait: A Symphony of Flavours

In the Apple Pie Parfait (HK$108), cinnamon powder and hojicha jelly play a pivotal role, infusing richness and warmth into the frozen dessert. This delightful creation layers Japanese candied apples, crispy pie crust drizzled with caramel sauce, fluffy sponge cake, and dollops of ice cream and fresh cream.

The tea-flavoured jelly at the bottom, coupled with a generous dusting of cinnamon on top, creates an aromatic combination that elevates the overall taste to a winter wonder.

Cinnamon Hojicha Latte: A Double Dose of Exotic Aromas

For latte enthusiasts, the Cinnamon Hojicha Latte (HK$48) offers a double dose of exotic aromas. The Sri Lankan cinnamon spice enlivens the Kyoto roasted tea, with both powders expertly blended into a creamy Japanese milk and white chocolate sauce.

This magical concoction provides a silky rush of irresistible flavours, making it a must-try for those who appreciate the art of tea and lattes.

Creamy Salmon & Clam Rice: Winter’s Unique Creation

Exclusive to the winter season, the Creamy Salmon & Clam Rice (HK$148) is a showcase of Japan’s seasonal bounty. Featuring rich salmon, flavourful clams, and crisp green beans enveloped in a moreish white sauce, this dish evokes the pristine snowfall of Japan’s winter.

Accompanied by a bowl of specially prepared dried-plum flakes, it provides a unique touch to whet the appetite and balance the delicious oiliness of the fish.
