'Satén' is One of the Best Places to Enjoy Modern Matcha in Tokyo
Are you a fan of matcha? Searching for the best places in Tokyo to drink delicious matcha (and single-origin green tea)? If so, a trip to Satén in Tokyo's Nishi Ogikubo neighborhood needs to go on your list of cafes to try in Tokyo.
Feel free to follow favy!
Saten is one of the coolest tea shops in Tokyo. The atmosphere is on point, with lots of natural light, comfy seats, and classy tea-colored decor. Just like at a quality coffee shop, single-origin teas can be ordered in a variety of preparations, from traditional to modern (aero press tea? yes!).
Satén also has one of the best Matcha lattes in Tokyo, using high-quality, unsweetened matcha, and complete with latte art that can rival espresso drinks. The matcha pudding is also a must-try and will blow you away with its richness and silky texture.
The shop is run by Kazuhiro Koyama, a highly-talented "cha-rista" (cha = tea in Japanese) who trained at Chachanoma, a highly-regarded tea shop in Omotesando before opening Satén in 2018. The standard of quality at Satén is extremely high, and every beverage is prepared with amazing precision and attention to detail. You'll be impressed no matter what drink you choose.
If you're at all a fan of tea or matcha, Satén should definitely go on your must-visit-in-Tokyo list! When you go, it's also worth it to check out the surrounding neighborhood of Nishi Ogikubo. It's well off the beaten path for tourists and is filled with charming little shops and restaurants. It's a great area to walk around and get a local Tokyo experience.
Take the JR Chuo Line to Nishi Ogikubo Station (About 15 minutes from Shinjuku Station) and head for the south exit. Take a right as soon as you exit the station and follow the street that runs next to the train tracks up and over a hill to reach the cafe (about 4 minutes walking).
