Yoshiharu Matsushita/松下芳春さん (on the right) has been growing tea in organic fashion as long as he can remember and actively continues not only growing it but conducting continuous research to ever improve quality.
Some ten years he decided to reach more people and customers by opening a very original Cafe called Maruha near his faraway tea fields in Kakegawa City!
The concept has a multiple purpose. Not only it introduces customers to top class organic green tea, but it also offers a space to enjoy it at leisure in the middle of rural Japan!
It also sells utensils, souvenirs and history!
A very spacious cafe with direct view on Japanese nature!
The menu is short but solid: Maruha New Green Tea set with green tea biscuits and green tea gelato, Cold macha Shiruko Japanese dessert, Maruha Zensai Japanese dessert and two types of green tea gelato! And also 4 different tea milk shakes!
The gelato/ice cram on offer!
I ordered the new green tea set with green tea biscuits and matcha gelato!
Delicious matcha gelato!
And superb top class new green tea!
Definitely worth the drive!
