While waiting for a performance at Kabuki-za to begin, I visited the Ginza tea shop which is just a few blocks away from the theater. Photography is not permitted inside, though you can see a nice interior photo on their official site. Service was quite courteous during my visit and I was offered a complimentary tasting of a 2nd Flush Darjeeling from Thurbo Tea Estate.
The tea shop offers an extensive selection of 1st, 2nd, and Autumnal Flush Darjeeling, as well as other teas from India, Sri Lanka, China, Kenya, and Japan. They also sell herbals, scented teas, custom blends, and teaware. Regularly scheduled tea lessons are available for customers fluent in Japanese.
