Tea Inspired Italian Gelato

Craftisan is vowing to introduce a new trend of enjoying teas into the community by creatively infused various tea into their homemade Italian Gelato. The Gelato had flavors ranging from the regulars such as Honey Jasmine and Earl Grey, all-time favourite Japanese Matcha and exquisite Hojicha, to the finest and premium Tie Guan Yin imported from Taiwan Chang Hsie Shing Tea Shop and revered Da Hong Pao dark Oolong tea. 

Of course, new tea themed Gelato variants may be invented by the chef from time to time and the surprises only will be unveiled either by a physical visit there or stalking their Facebook page.

Gelato Recipe Desserts that Worth Screaming

Patrons are expected to have their taste buds relished with the mixture of scented tea and creaminess of the Gelato in the gourmet desserts. For instance, the elegantly layered Verde Fever (RM 21) had a choice of Gelato, sitting on a bedding of perfectly creamed Panna Cotta and ratcheted into display perfection with strawberry slices and rice cookies, will leave the ladies scream in jubilant mood upon seeing it. 

Other than that, XXX which comes brownies with Gelato or snow themed dessert YYY with a minty igloo and Gelato ice cream are more than sufficient to sway the attention of dessert lovers.

Coffee Delight & Caffeine Fix

Relax your afternoon by getting a caffeine fix here with a cup of mocha, latte or cappuccino. For coffee connoisseurs who are keen on sipping the essence of the beans, do consult the barista for a cup of hand-dripped coffee made from some of the finest coffee beans in the world. 

If all the caffeine drinks still sound too conventional, then try the Affogato which combines hot espresso over the peculiar Honey Jasmine Gelato, a concoction that permeate your tongue with an unique chilling sensation.

Choco Latte or Hojicha Latte are available for those who are caffeine sensitive, yet the pleasure of sipping it are no less than a cup of coffee.

Morning Coffee, Afternoon Tea

The perfect gift for every day would be a cup of coffee in the morning, followed by tea in the afternoon. Craftisan certainly understood this fact by laying out several options such as Earl Grey Blue Flower, Apricot & Peach and other tea options on their menu. 

However, they are remained coy whether to serve the revered Tie Guan Yin or Da Hong Pao dark Oolong tea as a single choice.

The Final Verdict

We truly enjoy our evening here. Not only the environment was cozy, the desserts and drinks were awesome too. If you are looking for something more stomach fulfilling, head to their sister cafe - Soul Cafe which located downstairs for some of the best pasta in town prior coming here.
