The “Freshly Ground Green Tea” allows you to consume the full spectrum of nutrients such as catechins and theanine present in the tea leaves, along with the distinctive and rich flavors unique to freshly ground tea.

After ordering your drink, you can choose from a selection of over 100 different pottery items lined up on shelves.
