Suzukien Asakusa 壽々喜園 浅草本店
Suzukien Asakusa is your matcha heaven! Just a 5 minute walk north of the Sensoji Temple, you’ll get to choose between 7 levels of matcha-ness flavored ice cream. Some people may find Level 7 is a bit bitter because it’s super potent. Although Suzukien is known for their matcha, but one of my favorite was the black sesame and houjicha, a roasted tea flavor.
Aside from ice cream, Suzukien has a wide selection of tea and accessories. One of my favorite tea I got was the houjicha tea bags. You can drink it either hot or cold, simply put a tea bag with ice and water and let it sit for about an hour.
So if you just visited the Sensoji-Temple and been out in the sun for a while, this is definitely the place to cool down! There’s s small counter at the back of the shop so you can enjoy your ice cream!
