Time Out says

Shimokita Chaen is run by two siblings both of whom are certified as level 10 cha-shi tea masters – a qualification that only 15 people in Japan have achieved so far. They’ve designed their shop to showcase not only the taste and aroma of the tea, but also the serene sounds and colour of tea brewing. 

While the fragrant in-house hojicha roasted green tea is recommended for those who want to sip on traditional tea, the kakigori shaved ice topped with matcha espuma (syrup foam) is a fan favourite, but you have to be quick – it regularly sells out. Not to worry if you miss out on this epic dessert, you can still enjoy a simple matcha latte (¥648) or matcha soft serve (¥540).
