Chachanoma (茶茶の間) is a tea room in Tokyo which specializes in Japanese tea and has a very good reputation.
The name is a play on words. “Cha” means tea and “chanoma” means living room.
She makes the Green Tea Newbies videos on YouTube, which I highly recommend.
Omotesando is an avenue with impressive, modern architecture and luxury shopping. The tea room is nearby on a small street.
He’s a Japanese tea instructor from the Nihoncha Instructor Association for more than ten years, and has also written a book about Japanese tea.
Mr. Watada prepares and serves the tea himself.
My experience at Chachanoma
The tea room is small, but the atmosphere was very pleasant.
We greeted Mr. Watada, and I had a chance to take some pictures before he had to go back to work.
The tea menu has a little more than 30 Japanese teas.
In addition, each tea has a rating for the following: sweetness, umami, astringency, and aroma.
Mr. Watada has a strong sense of attention to detail. Everything looks beautiful, and he makes sure that the tea experience is unforgettable.
He expertly chooses the best way to prepare each infusion depending on the tea, resulting in different taste and aroma.
Definitely a great level of service.
It goes without saying that the teas were delicious.
Chachanoma also has a small section where one can buy tea to prepare at home, and tea ware.
I use it every day. It’s an item that I treasure.
After we had enjoyed our tea, Mr. Watada was still busy, so I didn’t get a chance to speak with him.
More customers came in and it was difficult for me to take more pictures.
If you come to Tokyo and want a wonderful tea experience, Chachanoma is the place to go.
