Yumcha My is a cafe/dessert shop that opens for takeaway or delivery for the moment. Currently, they are selling their premium handmade Kingyu Mooncake Box during this Mid Autumn Festival. I had the PSP.Kingyu Mooncake Box (RM139 promo price) that includes Ube Yuri Matcha, Ube Yama.Imo, NIKO Ajisai Matcha Pistachio, NIKO Houjicha Cranberry, NIKO Genmaicha Goma and NIKO Yuri Matcha Anko. It comes in a wooden box with premium Japan Furoshiki wrapping, handwritten greeting card and 2 X 350ml cold brew Genmaicha. Check out their Instagram page for their menu!
Comment: Cute Packaging but pretty small. I like the Japan style wrapping but I wasn't happy with the boxing inside, looks really simple and doesn't look premium at all. Also, there is no plastic knife given.
2 Limited Edition Ube Mooncake: Ube Yuri Matcha, Ube Yama.Imo
Comment: The Kingyu mooncakes look really cute and delicate but they are mini mooncakes. The size is too small for its premium price. However, it is suitable to be given as gifts.
Ube Yuri Matcha
Comment: Purple sweet potato skin with yuri matcha filling. The thickness of the skin is average yet acceptable. Sweet taste, matcha taste wasn't strong. Couldn't really taste the sweet potato flavor.
Comment: Sweet potato with premium yam imported from Japan. I like the yam filling, slightly fragrant. However, I will appreciate this more if the yam and sweet potato flavors are stronger.The skin is slightly thicker.
4 Premium Niko.Cha Mooncake- NIKO Ajisai Matcha Pistachio, NIKO Houjicha Cranberry, NIKO Genmaicha Goma and NIKO Yuri Matcha Anko
NIKO Ajisai Matcha Pistachio
Comment: This is my favorite among all with slightly stronger matcha taste and less sweet compared to the rest.
NIKO Genmaicha Goma
Comment: Genmaicha (Japanese brown rice green tea) with sesame. This is one of my favorite as well with the fragrant sesame flavor and a hint of brown rice aroma.
NIKO Yuri Matcha Anko
Comment: Yuri Matcha with red bean paste. This is quite sweet for me, red bean paste overpowered the matcha flavor.
NIKO Houjicha Cranberry
Comment: Slight taste of roasted green tea, overpowered by the extra sweet taste that comes from the cranberry.
Initially, I decided to try this set of mooncake box because I am a big fan of matcha and I wish to try a mooncake with a strong matcha taste. If you are looking for a sweet type of matcha mooncakes, you may opt for this.
