The Matcha Tokyo: Menu, Review & Locations (Philippines)

Looking for 100% organic matcha? Japan’s The Matcha Tokyo can also be found in Metro Manila! The cafe also has branches in Tokyo (Japan) where it originated in 2018, as well as Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Shanghai.

Offering high-quality ceremonial-grade matcha, The Matcha Tokyo uses Japan Premium, Kyoto Uji, and GOKO. Also according to its official website, their tea farms use natural spring water and are free from chemical fertilizers.

Matcha lovers rejoiced with the opening of The Matcha Tokyo in the Philippines – first in Mitsukoshi BGC and then in their second location in Gateway 2.

The premium matcha cafe uses homegrown raw brown sugar (you can adjust the sweetness level) and offers alternative (plant-based) milk like oat, soy, and almond for the lattes. Aside from drinks, they also sell food items like chocolates, Dorayaki, Matcha Vanilla Marble Cake, soft serve ice cream, and Matcha Milk Jam. Merchandise products are also available.

There are also seasonal favorites like the signature Matcha Sakura Latte and Matcha Mint Frozen. And of course, the Manila exclusive drink: the Matcha Ube Latte.

The Matcha Tokyo Mitsukoshi BGC Experience

You won’t miss The Matcha Tokyo’s Mitsukoshi branch because it’s near the entrance. Depending on the time of day, there can be a short queue at the counter but the line moves quickly.

The seating area is quite limited although that wasn’t a problem when we visited one afternoon. I liked their industrial minimalist interiors and how you could see your drink prepared in front of you after you ordered. The traditional process of making matcha always mesmerizes me.

I ordered the Matcha Float with Matcha Soft Cream and while it’s a bit on the pricey side, it’s definitely worth it. Their matcha lives up to their claim, having a bright green color, hardly any hint of bitterness but full of that umami and earthy taste that I love from ceremonial-grade tea.
