When you want to have some authentic Japanese tea, we recommend a Japanese tea stand cafe called YUGEN.
Thin matcha tea or matcha latte with a piece of miso matsuzake cake is a popular combination.
Each order is prepared by a tea master, to ensure you receive an aromatic and flavorful cup of matcha.
It can be served with milk if you prefer a matcha latte instead.
This is a peaceful and compact tea shop, so it's recommended for small groups, if you want to sit down.
