  1. Matthieu

    We came last Sunday for a teambuilding event, 9 of us pretty much unaware of the art of Japanese tea.
    It was a wonderful time, relaxed, warm, cozy, interesting and entertaining, …but most of all delicious. Everybody enjoyed it very much. I highly recommend to spend such quality time in this beautiful place
    Thank you Giedrė for sharing your beautiful passion, with sparkling eyes.

    • Yugen Tea (store manager)

      It was a delight to welcome your company, and we are grateful for your recommendation, Matthieu! Warm regards from Giedrė.
