It’s a matcha made in heaven.
Many sayings have sprung from that luscious meal ending of dessert: the old life is uncertain, eat dessert first makes sense to any normal person; in particular chocolate is witticised in plenty of saccharine displays of word play, probably rivalled only by quips about wine (see our above attempt at starting the matcha bon mot rolling). Such is this city’s love of the sweet stuff, we have dedicated pretty much this whole issue, except some Christmas stuff for good measure, to sweets of all sorts. We have a section on the all-important Hong Kong creations; a dedicated feature on the fancy green stuff, matcha; and a compendium of places to get macarons, eclairs, cheesecake and all that sugar-coated goodness that lights up the eyes, delights the tongue and fills our hearts with joy.
I’ll leave you with one more good one: You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy cupcakes, and that’s kind of the same thing.
