Ippodo Tea Kyoto 一保堂茶舗
Leave a tip
I always wanted to experience a Japanese tea room and we decided to try Ippodo Tea. The staff is very helpful and englishfriendly. We got the most expensive tea Gyokuro and with that you get to choose a soft or hard seasonal japanese sweet. Mine was the soft one and it was a boar. The Staff will explain in english how to brew the tea and make sure you have time, because this tea isn´t the fastest one.
I really recommend to try the Gyokuro, it´s something that I´m sure you haven´t tasted before.
There is also a shop where you can buy their tea.
One of the best places to go tea shopping if you can't speak Japanese. Good selection, helpful staff anda cafe section where you can order different drinks.
