Two kinds of ice cream from Hime

The first of the ice creams from Hime is the more traditional of the two, Green Tea, made from Japanese Matcha tea, a popular dessert in Japanese restaurants. It tastes pretty good, though it has a strong green tea flavour and is medium dark green in colour. I would say an acquired taste.

The second of the two ice creams is the more unusual, ginger ice cream. I was disappointed that it was only candied ginger pieces, which flavoured the vanilla ice cream around it, and made it sweet, I would rather the ice cream had ginger in it and thus be a little spicy. Still, not bad, but again I would say an acquired taste.
