My friend and I had a tea break at Ippodo tearoom in Tokyo Marunouch.

The Japanese green tea store was opened last December, 2010 in Tokyo
Marunouchi. The main store is located in Kyoto.

Ippodo in Marunouchi sells not only many kinds of Japanese tea leaves, but also there is a tearoom in the store.
We are able to enjoy Japanese tea of our choice.

However, we had a limited menu for Spring that Ippodo recommended.
We chose green tea, “Hosen” of Sencha with a Japanese confection.
Ippodo describes that the “Hosen” is a complex and multifaceted flavorcreated through a mixture of mellow sweetness, sharpness, and fragrance.

Also, a staff of Ippodo showed us how to brew the green tea in a way that brings out its most natural characteristic flavor.

And, there were 3 kinds of limited Spring Japanese confectioneries at this time,
and we chose the “Fukayoshino” and the “Hanakosode” that gave us the feeling of the coming of Spring.
They were not too sweet, but they made an amazing combination with the “Hosen”.

I wish we had only one tearoom where I currently live instead of all the dark, dirty and uncomfortable starbucks branches :(
