San Grams: A Third-Wave Green Tea Shop & Café

Cafés Tea Shoryudo Shizuoka Undiscovered Japan

Opened in 2015, San Grams is a green tea specialty shop and café owned and operated by one of Japan’s oldest tea shops, Marumatsu, which was founded roughly 100 years ago in Shizuoka, the heart of Japan's green tea industry.
