6 Matcha Desserts in Hong Kong All Matcha Lovers Must Try

Matcha Brownie

So it seems that the matcha trend is invading Hong Kong, and there are a few matcha desserts in Hong Kong that all matcha lovers must try. Whether you prefer your green tea fix in the form of cakes or soft serve, we’ve got you covered.

While there are countless dessert places in Hong Kong, and while Hong Kong is known for their Chinese-style desserts such as tong sui (sweet soup), there is no denying that matcha desserts deserve a special spot in our hearts.

Slowly but surely, the matcha craze will grow in Hong Kong. But first, here are 6 Matcha Desserts in Hong Kong All Matcha Lovers Must Try.



There are a few I Creameria outlets around Hong Kong, but they are mostly takeaways. There is no dine-in area, so pick up your dessert and go. The basic matcha soft serve is HK$38 (either in a cone or a cup), but the desserts here are significantly pricier, and while we are hesitant about heading back soon for their soft serve cups, it is still worth a try if you haven’t already.

The soft serve is creamy, yet does not leave you with a bitter aftertaste. We tried the exclusive Sawatari Tea-daifuku Parfait (HK$53) and loved how it was presented with mochi and azuki. If you are feeling indulgent, go for the Japanese Premium Melon Deluxe Soft Cream Parfair (HK$220).

Ice Cream Sandwich


Think of Little Bao as an American diner with a modern Asian twist, dishing out familiar and comforting renditions of our Asian favourites over the counter and in many refreshing manners.

The LB Ice Cream Sandwich (HK$48) is always a good way to end your meal. It is essentially green tea ice cream sandwiched between two deep-fried bao. In other words, brilliance.

Matcha Cheesecake


Sinmei Tea might just be the it place to be now when you need some matcha fix in Hong Kong. It took us a while to locate the place, because it sits on the fifth level, within an unassuming building in Sheung Wan. What welcomed us was a long queue of matcha lovers, and an atmospheric cafe with an interior that models after a traditional teahouse.

Dining at Sinmei Tea will require a bit of patience, as there is always a queue to get in, and an even longer wait for your desserts to be served. But if you can look beyond that, the Matcha Cheese Cake (HK$40) and the Sizzling Matcha Brownie (HK$78) make great treats. What impressed us the most is its Hot Matcha Latte (HK$38). It does not look anywhere near fancy, but what you get is a cup of authentic goodness that is powdery, smooth and leaves a fragrant roasted tea aftertaste.

Sweet House Cha Cha is a kiosk that sits within City’Super that is located on the third floor of HarbourCity, but that does not mean its matcha desserts are any less popular. If any, there is always a queue for their matcha drinks and soft serve.

Their soft serves are the popular ones, and for HK$32, you get a matcha soft serve on cone. On a side note, we heard the Hokkaido Milk flavour is pretty yummy too!

This tea specialist is housed in a little shophouse on a quiet alley off Tai Ping Shan Street, and it is easily one of the most popular cafes in recent times. The interior of the cafe is cute and cosy, while the outdoor terrace is a charming spot to have a cup of tea and enjoy their range of luscious desserts, including the signature Matcha Cheesecake.

The cake is moist and dense, and while there are many who enjoy a rich and sweet matcha cheesecake, we actually enjoyed Teakha’s version because it is not overwhelmingly sweet.

Via Tokyo


Located on Leighton Road at Causeway Bay, Via Tokyo is a dessert cafe which specializes in traditional Japanese sweets, and has been getting a lot of attention from locals and visitors alike. There is a perpetual queue, and sitting spaces are limited.

Expect a slew of matcha desserts here, including the Matcha Eclair, Matcha Swiss Roll, and of course, a variety of Matcha parfaits. The soft serve is the most popular, and it is indeed one of the creamiest ones we’ve ever had.
