Opening day for iconic Japanese matcha brand Tsujiri finally came, and Daily Hive showed up early to the new Metro Vancouver cafe to try all the most buzzed-about offerings.

Known for using green tea leaves from Uji in Kyoto in all its signature treats, the new Richmond spot offerings a menu packed of food and drink made with the green stuff.
