Masuda Chaho is a Uji tea specialty store founded in 1912. It is located in front of the main gate of the famous Uji tourist spot, Byodoin Temple.
The store is well-known for its Uji matcha ice cream generously topped with freshly ground matcha. In the cozy tea space inside the store, you can enjoy their carefully selected Uji tea.
Adjacent to the main store, there is a casual tea stand.
They offer a variety of drinks, including matcha lattes, cappuccinos, sodas, and cocktails, all made using Uji tea.
In the retail space, you can purchase stylishly packaged sencha and gyokuro tea, Uji matcha, and Uji hojicha, as well as items like “Cappuccino Sticks” that use Uji tea. They also offer tea tools such as cold brew bottles and tumblers.
