Tsujiri is a tea biz that goes back to 1860 in Kyoto, Japan. They use green tea leave from the “renowned harvest of Uji in Kyoto,” and a traditional grinding method.

In addition to tea, Tsujiri is known for all the wonderfully delicious tea treats they make, like ice cream, sundaes, shave ice, chiffon cake, and an array of hot and cold drinks.

The Japan-based chain has locations around the world, including China, Taiwan, the UK, Australia, Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia, among others, and has one Canadian location so far, in downtown Toronto.
