Venice Will Sport a New Matcha Green Tea Cafe

They call it the "un-coffee" café

There are plenty of coffee shops proliferating the "coolest block in America" a.k.a. Abbott Kinney Blvd in Venice. But now, Green Tea World USA will open the first Japanese green tea café on the stretch, SHUHARI Matcha Café.

The name "shuhari" refers to the process of achieving mastery in the world of tea ceremonies. As such, the café will offer over 40 varieties of tea beverages that range from traditional senchas to more contemporary preparations like matcha lattes and sparkling matchas.

Of course, it wouldn't feel like tea time without a few bites to accompany your matcha. SHUHARI will offer onigirazu, or Japanese rice balls; matcha, ginger, and black sesame ice cream sundaes; plus a variety of Japanese sweets.

SHUHARI Matcha Café is slated to open this summer.
