Snack Series: Kabuki Cafe Green Tea Ice Cream

Reader Venessa H. recently sampled some of the Green Tea Ice Cream at the brand new Kabuki Cafe in Epcot’s Japan pavilion and sent us a mini-review.

Green Tea Ice Cream

When I thought “green tea ice cream,” I thought it would be creamy and scooped out onto a little bowl — it’s texture would just melt in your mouth. Yet, it was packaged and hard and kind of like the Gelato you get over in the Italy stand (which isn’t even Gelato anymore).

Even when I let it melt a little, it just didn’t feel right. It was somewhat refreshing and it had that artificial green tea flavor. By all means people should give it a try since we all have different taste buds, but it didn’t cut it for me.

Oh well — sounds like the green tea ice cream isn’t on the must-try list, but I’d love to hear what you guys think!

    Haha, I just RT’d that I couldn’t wait to try it, THEN read the review. Oops! What a bummer, the stuff they have inside Teppan Edo is so yumtastic, I figured it would be the same. I’ll still try it but I’m a pretty picky ice cream person so I’ll probably feel the same. Thanks for the heads up!

    ick. not sure i’d go for that. i wish disney wouldn’t put nutrition facts on their food. i mean, i KNOW people have a right to know….but i want to pretend everything is fat free and calorie free while i’m on vacation. ;)

    Dang too bad, I love green tea so I thought this would be fun to try. I might have to just to see, but I won’t have my hopes up. Thanks for the review!

    I will try anything that my special diet allows. One time for some things like the mint julep at Disneyland and many times for Asian salads made by Toby. Wow, look at all them thickeners. Try green tea ice cream of China and Japan pavillions to see if the have better stuff. Great report, A+

    I LOVE green tea ice cream, but what I love most about it is the slightly gritty texture … what was the texture like? Sounds like not good all around. Bummer.

    Are the nutrition fact labels on those types of foods new? I was just down this past April and they definitely didn’t have labels on any of those types of foods.

    I made some green tea ice cream in culinary school and my ingredients were nothing like this. I was surprised that it came out so well since it was an experimental recipe that I’d come up with. And, thanks for posting the nutrition label, I like to know whats in my food before I eat it to give me a heads up about the flavor. And for those who are curious here’s the ingredients if you wanna try this out with your home ice cream maker.

    12 oz. whole milk
    1/4 vanilla bean pod, opened & scraped
    5 1/2 oz granulated sugar
    5 egg yolks (large)
    8 fl oz. heavy whipping cream
    6 oz. fresh made green tea (2-3 tea bags)

    Taste’s amazing, not artificial junk.

    I’d have to try it to truly find out. Good thing i’m probably going to disney world this summer!
