Tokyo Saryo

By Lisa Wallin

Described as the world’s first hand-drip green tea shop, Tokyo Saryo opened its minimalist doors in Sangenjaya in January 2017. Inspired by coffee culture, they designed their own dripper, which the barista uses to extract green tea from their selection of seven types of sencha leaves.

Aside from the aesthetic beauty of the café, which is all white and wood and clean, straight lines (and the handiwork of Lucy Alter Design), we love how they are reviving, modernizing and simplifying the traditional tea ceremony. Also, instead of offering blended tea, which is the norm these days, they serve single-origin green tea sourced from around Japan, allowing you to appreciate the contrast in flavors.
