This kokedama ice dessert was created by chefs at the Oirase Keiryu Hotel in Northern Japan as a homage to the Japanese gardening practice. Set to be available this summer from June to August at the hotel, the kokedama dessert consists of matcha ice cream that's covered in spinach powder and served on a spot of green apple puree.

The kokedama dessert is inspired by the kokedama gardening practice that consists of a plant being covered in mud, wrapped with moss and then hung from a string in midair. The earthy ice dessert variant is set to be a hit for the hotel with each serving priced at 1,300 Yen and only available for a single season.
