A new Japanese macha dessert house is opening in Leeds

Tsujiri is the new Japanese matcha dessert house coming to Leeds city centre- and just wait until you see the menu.

Called Tsujiri, the brand is already established in London and abroad, with two stores in Manchester.

When Tsjuri opened its first location in Chinatown, Manchester mid-pandemic, it saw foodies flock to its basement shop for a taste of its bright-green matcha basque cheesecakes, ice cream and lattes.

Now bringing the best of macha sweet treats to Leeds, it’s expected you’ll find an array of different Japanese desserts alongside its various bright and colourful teas.

Focusing on a traditional Japanese dessert menu, including sundaes built using matcha-flavoured ice creams, all matcha used in Tsujiri’s desserts is sourced directly from Japan.

The company, first born in Kyoto in 1860, is over 150 years old, and still uses the same matcha from its Japanese hometown across its restaurants today.

This vibrant green matcha can be found within most of the new cafe’s menu such as its soft serves, teas and cakes. It is also selling bags of matcha that can be enjoyed at home.

The health benefits of matcha are widely celebrated, from its antioxidants called catechins, which are said to be the key to anti-ageing, to a high amount of substances with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Consuming matcha daily is also thought to be good for your mental health, with researchers saying that the natural compounds in matcha act on natural serotonin and dopamine systems in the brain. Like we needed another reason to go and get that bright green cheesecake.
