The tea shop is located just inside the entrance. Here you'll find a great selection of award-winning teas and you might even see their matcha grinder in action.
I requested the matcha set with CHOAN usucha (thin matcha) and kurikinton wagashi (tea sweet). Water service was generous and was served in cut glass with a touch of gold where it had been repaired with kintsugi, bringing a welcome wabi sabi feeling to the tea service.
After I finished the matcha and wagashi, I was treated to a cup of Marukyu Koyamaen's seasonal Tsubokiricha sencha. This was a happy coincidence because I had planned before my visit to purchase their Tsubokiri matcha.
