Review №1


Very very small intimate place to get matcha. its super authentic, they got different kinds of matcha to pick from based on your preference. they make the drinks in front of you which is very calming 😌

Review №2


This was on my must-do list when I went to New York! It’s such an interesting location and the matcha they have is fantastic. They do have options at various price points so you can choose whether you want to spend a lot or have something a little more modest. My matcha was wonderful and I hope to come back soon!

Review №3


Love this place! High quality matcha, lovely service, great experience.However, my matcha was not fully whisked and thus there were lots of clumps that settled at the bottom. Bummer.

Review №4


Great experience! When we walked up it was about a 5 minute wait for an matcha affogato and iced matcha. When we were called, we were surprised to find out that you get to watch your matcha getting prepared in a sort of abridged tea ceremony.The matcha itself was super high quality. Both my girlfriend and I are a bit of matcha snobs and we will both be coming back again!

Review №5


Wait time may be a bit long since the tea is only sold 4 times a week. But, it is definitely worth a wait

Review №6


I got a matcha iced latte; it was good and had well-rounded flavor. Not bitter or grainy at all. I didnt realize how good it was until I tried another different matcha place. 😬

Review №7


Tiny matcha spot in LES. This place looks like a traditional Japanese room with tatami floor. There are not many seats - you can sit on the tatami floor, but it’s a bit uncomfortable. They offer different kinds of matcha from various regions. Their matcha affogato was okay, but the matcha-ppuccino was bland, and matcha latte was bitter. If you really like matcha and want to experience a japanese tea tasting menu, you would enjoy this place.

Such a gem in the east village! Their matcha affogato is a must try! They also do everything with so much care and narrative. Go there and be still.

Review №9


Wow! This was a must visit for me going to New York and it was definitely worth it. The store was very small but nicely decorated in a peaceful minimalist way. A sanctuary of calm in the bustling east village. The woman who served us prepared our tea in a very elegant way and was very knowledgeable. I am a bit disappointed that we couldnt select a Chawan to drink from but I understand why not because of the pandemic. The house milled matcha was fantastic. I recommend getting it hot and at premium strength, which is the traditional preparation. I also got a desert which was very good. Will come again next time I am in the city. I hope I can catch one of the more traditional tea ceremonies it hosts occasionally.

I have never had matcha on its own before but it was refreshing. They made the tea in front of you.
