Time Out says

A peaceful haven close to the frenetic Cat Street in Harajuku, this pared-down tea house specialises in organic matcha but will appeal most to those looking for trendy new drinks featuring Japanese tea. The Matcha Tokyo Omotesando has all the trimmings of a traditional tea salon but none of the stuffiness: one of its walls is adorned with a calligraphic artwork translating to ‘I love matcha’; there’s a small irori (Japanese hearth) by the window featuring classic tea utensils; even the benches are clad in tatami mat.

We enjoyed the matcha coffee latte (¥702), which boasts three colourful layers of matcha, milk and coffee. The shop also sells a soy (¥702) and almond milk (¥702) version of its popular matcha latte (¥693). You can shop for matcha powder and tea equipment here, but make sure you also sign up for the Matcha Experience to learn how to whisk the powder into tea.
