    One of the best tea houses on the city. Don't just come for the desserts they have great savory snacks too

    If you love green tea and desserts, you must visit here. So delicious!!! Place is rather small so you may have to wait if you're unlucky.

    Tea-smoked salmon salad and earl gray chocolate mochi - amazing. Get a Kago set bento box! Be prepared to wait if you don't get there right when it opens but it'll be worth it!

    I had the dessert sampler for my sweet tooth, French toast and pearl tea, everything hit the spot esp the ice cream

  • Ernesto G.

    The decor alone gives this place a great setting for enjoying some tea. The mochi they serve is the high class one, you won't be able to go back to the one you find in supermarkets.

    Cozy Jap teahouse w/delicately prepared bentos, donburis, toasts, & desserts. Black sesame creme brûlée is the usual pick but my sweet tooth prefers the Mixed berry Parfait w/ fab flavors & textures

    Joyce Chong · January 12

    This casual, cash-only Japanese tea room is notable for its tea, but also for its desserts. If you’re not looking for anything sweet, then come here before 6pm and grab a seat. Read more

  • Emma C.

    The lavender mint tea is sweet and refreshing, a must try. The raspberry chocolate soufflé is heavenly, served at the perfect temperature. Only downside of this place is that they accept cash only.

    Emma Chan · October 28, 2014
  • Ariel V.

    The tea such a wonderful array of notes, this definitely a place to get quality tea and escape from the world for a little while.

    Ariel Viera · October 17, 2014

    The black sesame creme brulee is worth the wait.

    Jenny Kim · October 4, 2014

    Excellent ambiance and extra friendly staff. Get the Chef's selection dessert sampler to taste their many different desserts. Be ready for a green tea & black sesame overload.

    Loved their green tea smoked salmon! Loved the greens, the sauce, the very thick toast, and the salmon itself. The ambiance was great, as well. Forego the team/dessert. Get the 6 seater private room!
