East Asian countries are known for their knowledge and long history of drinking tea and this Japanese tea shop extends that tradition.

'San Grams' is a specialty tea shop that features "single origin" green teas rather than the blends that are increasingly common among tea cultures. The shop sells teas with neat and clear packaging that provides instructions for optimal brewing methods -- including temperature and steeping time. The tea shop also provides seasonal dishes that are paired with specific teas to bring out their flavors, providing an enriching and luxurious experience that focuses on quality and flavor.

This "third wave tea movement" hopes to bring back certain tea-drinking traditions while also providing a product for the modern sophisticated palate.
