What’s more luxurious than a cone of dense, rich gelato on a hot day? Try covering it with gold leaf. Though tasteless, this touch adds a whole new level of opulence. It’s all about the presentation, right?
Popularized by Japanese tea producer Oyaizu Seicha, these tea-flavored gelato cones are one of the richest additions to the ice cream department ever made. Flavors range from Floral Jasmine to Rum Raisin, Darjeeling Tea and a whole host of roasted, creamy, and classic green tea varieties.
