Update: Temporary Business Hours and Closures

The shortened hours will be in effect for the near future. Our Tokyo Marunouchi Store will be closed on upcoming weekends.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding.

Now Accepting Pre-Orders for 2020 Shincha

2020 Shincha Now Accepting Pre-Orders!

Shincha—sencha released right after is harvested—is only available for about two months in the year. Our Online Shop is now accepting pre-orders for this tea at a discount, so that tea lovers outside Japan also have the chance to secure their supply of 2020 Shincha before its on-sale date, which is expected to be in mid-May.

[Announcement] Temporary Closure of Ippodo New York

After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily close Ippodo Tea New York to the public until it’s deemed prudent, for the health and safety of our staff and beloved customers.

As of tomorrow, Friday, March 20th, we will be closed until further notice. Though we are a take-out only tea shop, we believe this is in the best interest for both our community and the world-at-large.

We plan to re-open when it’s deemed safe to do so, and we look forward to welcoming you in then to share a cup of tea with us. In the meantime, our recently launched USA & Canada website,, can supply all of your Japanese green tea needs (with free shipping for all orders $35+).
Please take care of yourself, your family and community. We can’t wait to see you again soon.

All our best,
Ippodo Tea New York

[Announcement] Cancellation of Workshops in Kyoto and Tokyo

Following the Japanese government’s recommendation that all events be cancelled to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, we have decided to cancel all Ippodo events in Japan for the month of April. We apologize for the sudden announcement and for the inconvenience.

Both our Kyoto Main Store and Tokyo Marunouchi Store will continue to be open (with shortened hours), and we will be happy to serve you as usual in our tearoom and shopping area.
