The interior of the shop is clean and makes use of raw, natural materials. Minimalist packaging decorates the space. Fine tea is deeply rooted in Japanese culture. The traditions surrounding tea and tea ceremonies are deeply rooted and ever-present. The name of the shop is, pronounced  ichi-go ichi-e, is a complicated phrase with many interpretations. It can loosely translate to encourage the cherishing of a moment, the smaller things in life, such as a cup of tea. We think it is a great concept and we really like the style of the packaging!
