We're thrilled that Teakan is now available at Whisk Matcha cafe! Not only will you be able to find our latest Tea Exploration Kit on the shelf, the five specialty loose leaf teas are also available on their menu for dine-in or takeout.
If you’ve never been to Whisk Matcha cafe, here’s what you’ve been missing out:
- They serve high quality matcha, hojicha, specialty loose leave teas and coffee
- They have unique drinks, food, and pastries
- Everything on the menu is plant-based
Kimmy, founder of Whisk Premium Matcha, brought premium organic matcha from Japan to the market four years ago. Started as an online and wholesale business, with many pop-ups in between, Kimmy’s goal of having a tea focused plant-based brick and mortar cafe finally became a reality this May. Partnered with Monica, owner/baker of Level V Bakery, this 100% female owned cafe is fast becoming a gem in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood.
Ask someone who’ve been to Whisk for recommendations, the unique and popular drinks such as strawberry matcha latte, virgin matcha mojito, and hojicha milkshake would definitely make the list. Yet on closer look at their menu, it’s easy to notice Kimmy’s intention in offering a wide yet quality selection to her customers with specialty coffee from Moving Coffee as well as fine loose leaf teas.
Teakan & Whisk Collaboration
Kimmy’s passion for matcha sparked her interest in loose leaf teas and is on her way to becoming a tea sommelier herself. She believes that customers should be able to observe the tea brewing process, watch the tea leaf unfurl before their eyes and savour the delicate flavor from specialty teas. These are the result of the collaboration with Teakan - to offer a variety of fine loose leaf teas and bring a different tea experience to the customers. When you order your Teakan’s tea, don’t forget to look at the shape and colour of the teas from the glass jars on the counter and watch as your tea brew right before your eyes. When you’re about to finish your first cup, Kimmy and her team will brew a 2nd infusion so you can compare the difference between the two. The single origin tea selection changes periodically so customers always get something new to savour.
With premium matcha, high-quality teas, and specialty coffee, when you visit Whisk Matcha cafe next, your biggest problem might be on what to order. But don’t worry, their friendly staff will be happy to recommend.
