TEAROOM

冬夏 tearoom toka

Our intimate six seat counter-style tearoom is located in a 100-year-old Kyoto town house. The building stands right above a rich vein of groundwater which has been regarded as one of the finest in Kyoto since olden times.

We boil water freshly drawn from our own well, put the tea leaves in an earthen teapot, and brew the tea in front of you.

You can choose from a wide range of unique organic Japanese green teas including different cultivars produced in different regions with different cultivation and processing methods, as well as teas from different fields and harvest years. We work with organic tea farmers from all over Japan to serve you individual green teas.

Each tea is special and we strive to brew each one in a way that will bring out the best of its character. Please enjoy the subtle changes of flavor throughout several infusions.

We invite you to experience completely new facets of Japanese tea. Taste our taste.

Tea is served together with handmade organic cacao from Hawaii or fresh Japanese sweets from our favorite wagashi maker in Kyoto.
