Whisk Matcha Cafe is an upcoming plant-based matcha cafe opening in Mount Pleasant this summer.
Whisk Matcha started out as a North American online retailer of organic competition grade matcha. In fact, they are the only distributor and purveyor of competition-grade matcha.
Founded by Kimmy, a veteran matcha-holic and upcoming certified tea sommelier, Whisk Matcha held a few pop-ups locally last year where they crafted matcha drinks from hot lattes to matcha lemonades and served housemade matcha donuts and parfaits.
The upcoming Whisk Matcha cafe is aiming to offer customers a matcha/tea/coffee experience paired with plant-based desserts created by Monica Tang of Level V Bakery.
The matcha offered at the cafe will be the highest grade, award-winning, organic variety from tea farms in Kyoto, Japan.
There are plans for a dedicated counter space where matcha will be whisked ceremonial style.
Other plans for the menu include light lunch items such as deli sandwiches and hearty soups. All items will be plant-based and using organic ingredients wherever possible.
You can learn more about the story behind Whisk Matcha Cafe from their Kickstarter campaign.
Stay tuned for more details on the opening of Whisk Matcha Cafe.
