Saryo Tsujiri Daimaru Tokyo
Time Out says
Matcha café Saryo Tsujiri, originally from Kyoto, is conveniently located on the tenth floor of the Daimaru Tokyo department store adjoining Tokyo Station. Ask for a counter seat facing the large window with views of the surrounding high-rise buildings and even Tokyo Skytree in the distance on clear days. Besides its variety of drinks, such as green tea soda (¥924) and iced lemon green tea (¥869), there’s a range of tea-based desserts – think hojicha (roasted green tea) jelly (¥968), or a matcha castella cake parfait (¥ 1,342), a layered combination of all things matcha, including cream, castella, ice cream, and sauce.
If you prefer a traditional tea tasting instead, then order a brew of the Karigane Genmaicha (green tea with roasted rice), popular for its fragrant roasted aroma. The tea is served as a set with a sweet treat of your choice (¥968). Don’t leave without browsing the café’s little retail section, which sells matcha, hojicha and genmaicha for your tea collection back home.
