Japanese chain Tsujiri opening first Toronto location

Toronto's in love with matcha, and for good reason. Not only is this finely ground green tea powder delicious, but it also apparently offers a slew of potential health benefits. And thankfully (for our tastebuds), the downtown core will soon be home to a new cafe dedicated to serving up matcha-infused treats.

Tsujiri, a more than 155-year-old Japanese brand, is opening its first North American store at 147 Dundas St. W in early March. Naturally, it'll be dedicated to all things green tea; its menu includes items such as soft-serve sundaes, chiffon cakes, milk tea floats, cappuccinos as well as a few new products that the company's developing specifically for Toronto.

Along with the cafe, Tsujiri will feature a traditional tatami room at the back of the restaurant.

Tsujiri won't be the first Toronto spot devoted to matcha. We already have the enormously popular Uncle Tetsu's Matcha Cafe at Bay and Dundas and Nohohon Tea Room on Queen Street West.
