Square One shopping mall has recently opened a variety of new dessert stores, and the next is to be a 155-year-old ice cream joint that you have to try!

Tsujiri Ice Cream, originally from Kyoto Japan, is a legendary store that offers matcha-based desserts. Matcha, for those who aren’t aware, is finely ground green tea leaves that can be commonly found in smoothies and juice’s.

Tsujiri opened its first North American store a year ago in Toronto and it has become a rousing success, largely thanks to the recent boon in matcha love. Green tea, and matcha as a result, is one of the healthiest things you can put into your body, it has a laundry list of benefits that you’d be a fool not to at least try. This is one trend that I welcome with open arms, and having matcha-based ice cream is the…ahem…icing on the ice cream cake.

You can grab a variety of drinks, ice creams, sundaes, and chewy treats, all made with traditional matcha methods. Interestingly, they also offer hot drinks and cakes. All of these items are very affordable and each worth a try, even if the colour may not look all that appealing.

Tsujiri Ice Cream has yet to open its doors in the Square One mall but it won’t be much longer, as it will join the Love Me Sweet cheescake store, as well as Squish Gummies. Get out there and try some of these delicious new stores!
