After seeing all the crazed reactions to Starbucks Japan’s exclusive matcha pudding cups, it seems the craving for green tea flavored anything is still strong as ever. Everywhere, restaurants and dessert shops are still churning out sweet treats infused with this distinct flavor. We’ve curated a list before of matcha must-tries; here are a few more you should seek out!

Just have this sinfully indulgent block of warm green tea toast topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with chocolate syrup — it’ll feel like the same thing without the judgement.
Matcha Green Tea-ramisu at Ooma
If you’re one of those who can’t handle too much of the intense flavors of tiramisu, then Ooma’s tiny cup of its matcha-infused dessert will suit your palate just fine. It balances the tastes of rum and coffee without the overpowering aftertaste, and the hint of green tea becomes an added kick. It’s perfect for an after-meal pick-me-up!
