Malaysia Tea House: Tea Press

If you're into Japanese tea instead, Tea Press is definitely the place to go. Operated by a Japanese owner, you can be sure that all tea and Japanese desserts served here are authentic.

Japanese tea has rather more "rules" to follow. Different tea HAS to be brewed with different temperature (eg, 40 - 50 celcius for Gyokuro and 100 celcius for Genmaicha.) Each dose of tea leaves can only be brewed maximum 3 times. The taste of the tea would change from sweet to bitter the more times you brew it. After the 3rd cup, it's considered too bitter for consumption. This feature of Japanese tea also adds elements of surprise to drinker as the taste of tea varies with every cup you brew. 

Very often, Japanese tea is served with dessert as the sweetness in the dessert would contrast the bitterness of the tea.


Here, i ordered Japanese Orange tea and Warabi-mochi.

This was my first time having Warabi-mochi. As expected as a mochi, it was extremely chewy and sticky, served with soy powder and brown sugar syrup. It tasted okay but i guess i would still very much prefer Sakura-mochi over this.
