  • Kyoto's 156-year-old matcha specialist is coming to Bangkok

Japan's old-school tea brand Tsujiri is set to open its first branch in Bangkok.  

The brand traces its origins back to the original Tsujiri in Kyoto, founded in the green-tea heartland of Uji in 1860 (though today's legendary Gion Tsujiri in Kyoto is a separate organization).

On top of the famed Uji tea, prepared according to traditional grinding method, Tsujiri also appeals to younger generations through popular items like sundaes, cakes, cream puffs and shaved-ice desserts. 

The Bangkok debut is expected to open at EmQuartier by the end of the year, rolling out the same quality items that have made it popular everywhere from London and Toronto to Singapore and Melbourne.

Keep an eye on the brand's new Thailand Facebook page for more info. New branches are also set to open in Hong Kong and California, too.
