When we go to Japan, we always try to fill up with Japanese tea experiences which include not only tea making hands-on experiences but also eating and drinking. As we have received many inquiries regarding this matter, we decided to share our experiences on our blog so you can try them on your next visit to Japan. Please bear in mind that all the comments here are based on our experiences and the information were obtained at the time of our visit. Please check the latest information before your visit.
Enjoy your tea trip to Japan.
Now here is our first report.
Tokyo: HIGASHIYA GINZA
We ordered the tea pairing courses which came with four different teas with paired sweets. Each tea was served in different tea ware. Paired sweets were very creative and modern while preserving Japanese traditional style. It was hard to choose the very best pairing among four as each tea was served very uniquely. The staff who served us was polite and friendly. Booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
