Japan meets France in matcha mille crepes, the delicate treat that’s stacking up on high tea menus around the globe. London’s Kova Patisserie spreads custard between paper-thin, matcha-dusted sheets — perfect for pairing with an afternoon cup of sencha. At L’otus Cake Boutique in Richmond, B.C., top-tier Uji powder harvested near Kyoto adds earthy depth to 15 super-fine strata. And, with more layers than the Rachel, the matcha-cream-drenched slice at Overture in Taichung, Taiwan, takes the cake.
