Modern tea experience in Tokyo

green_tea

I went to this beautiful place in Tokyo called Souen. It is a modern tea house that is inspired by the traditional Japanese tea ceremony but with the new twist that they serve the tea in cocktails. The environment is calm and minimalistic, only with natural materials: stone, brass, wood and ceramics. The bartender is fully focused on his task: pouring water, preparing tea, mixing the cocktail and serving it in the perfect glass. This was an experience for all the senses!
