“Let’s be honest, writing a list like this for Tokyo is like trying to pick the best taco stand in Mexico City. It’s freaking impossible. There are hundreds of choices and inevitably you’re going to piss someone off. But we had to start somewhere! I found ten places in Tokyo that are worthy of a tea connoisseur’s attention. These aren’t the traditional ceremonies, nor are they run-of-the-mill tea shops. There’s something special in each of these locations; tea worth discovering.” Jordan G. Hardin
