I had traditional Japanese red bean paste with mochi waffle cake take away. It tasted really nice like I had in Japan. It was a great experience that I can try real Japanese dessert in Kuranda.

Tea is refreshing, and many to choose from. Healing qualities outlined well on boards outside this quaint shop in the centre of the Kuranda village markets.

Take a side trip to Japan while you're in Kuranda. This charming little tea house is the genuine article, right down to the dishes and the tiny garden. The host is very polite and caring.

Enjoyed a refreshing Japanese mango ice tea here! It was lovely just sitting there, with somewhere playing guitar nearby. The shop owner is very nice and service is great. Tea is freshly brewed and so much more refreshing than the bottles variety!
