An Institution In Kyoto, Ippodo Tea: A Tea Shop & A Tea Room!

Kyoto City

Ippudo has been providing fine tea in the heart of Kyoto for almost 300 years! They sell tea cultivated in and around Kyoto, which is known to be of the highest quality. More than a tea shop, it is also a tea room and a tea class! While in Kyoto, you should definitely check it out for yourself.

Feel free to follow favy!

Ippodo Tea Co. Kyoto

Ippodo Tea Co. is originally from Kyoto, but now has branches in Tokyo and even New York! Customers can come in to buy tea or they can also come in for a tea class and a tea room! It is definitely on the high-end side, but it is a worthy experience.
You can savor their tea on site with sweets, and you can also make it at home after learning about it at the store. You can learn for example about tea food pairings. For example, what's the best fit for strawberry shortcake or gyoza?

You can try different varieties of tea on location, such as matcha, gyokuro, sencha, and bancha. Each drink is served with a Japanese sweet. A set is between 650-1,300 yen.

Tea Classes

If you simply want to learn how to prepare tea, the staff can show you in the tea room.
For more in-depth information about tea and how to prepare it, you can follow their class.

The class is 5,400 yen per person, and there are about 10 people per class.
This is a great opportunity to learn about Japanese tea.

Tea Shop

Ippodo has a large variety of high-quality tea. You can, for example, find different grades of matcha and the utensils to make them. If you would like to impress your friends back home, you can take a tea class at the store, and learn the techniques for making delicious tea for your friends and loved ones. That's pretty neat actually!


While in Kyoto, be sure to check out this beautiful tea shop. You'll find perfect souvenirs and you can also have a nice cup of tea and sweets (i.e. a nice relaxing time). They also have shops all around Japan, and in New York!

I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
