Chun Shui Tang is a cafe chain specializing in tea that is thoroughly focused on quality. There are 38 stores in Taiwan, and it's popular because there are always lines. It is a very popular shop for tourists from Japan.
When the representative of Oasis Tea Lounge, which operates in Japan, visited Taiwan, he was impressed by the interior of the store, the customer service, and the deliciousness of the products, and persuaded the representative. It took months to persuade him to make a foray into Japan.
When creating a store, one of the moving points, "interior," is also important. Small items reminiscent of "Taiwan" such as tea ware are placed in a bright space based on white. There is also a counter seat with an outlet, so it seems easy to use even between work.
Of course, there are table seats in the back, so you can use it as a group.
◆ Discerning "tea specialty store"
Chun Shui Tang has introduced a "tea master certification system", and it seems that only employees who have passed the test can offer products. Each menu carefully makes a cup of tea with different blends, how to make it, and the proportion of syrup.
In addition, we measure the "sugar content" each time before providing it, and only deliver the products that reach the standard value to our customers. It will take some time before it is served, but you can enjoy the authentic taste.
◆ The most popular is "tapioca milk tea"
This time, the teas to be released in Japan are teas such as "Tapioca milk tea", "Tieguanyin latte" and "Aiyu jasmine lemon tea", which are popular in Taiwan, and almond tofu. And light meals such as cookies. You can enjoy both eat-in and To go (some eat-in only).
We are particular about adding no additives, and select only those that do not contain any fragrances or preservatives. The syrup is also made by boiling natural millet sugar in a 170 degree pot and making it at the store every day.
The most popular "tapioca milk tea" is a mixture of fragrant black tea, mellow milk, and chewy tapioca. The black tea blended for this menu is very strongly extracted and has an impressive scent that goes through the nose. Although it has a strong taste, the sweetness of sugar is modest, and you can enjoy a refreshing aftertaste. I was surprised at the chewyness and texture of tapioca.
"Tieguanyin Latte" is a latte that combines the tea "Tieguanyin" with smooth foam milk. An exquisite combination of fragrant Tieguanyin scent and mildly sweet milk. It has a taste that can be called "adult milk tea". Take a break from the texture of foam milk.
At first glance, "Aitama Jasmine Lemon Tea," which looks like orange juice, is a dish that matches the sweet and sour taste of lemon with the refreshing aftertaste of jasmine tea. "Aitama" is a tasteless jelly "Aitamako" that is often eaten in Taiwan, and adds an accent to the texture. It has a mellow scent like fruit juice, but has a refreshing aftertaste, which is a nice taste in summer.
There is also a hot version for each, so you can enjoy it regardless of the season.
◆ We plan to open stores in the future!
It has been decided to open a store in the Roppongi area in the winter of 2013, and it is planned to open the store after that. A full-fledged tea drink that is easy to drink even for people who are not good at sweet drinks, why not give it a try?
The store is located at 20-9 Daikanyama-cho, Shibuya-ku. Business hours are from 9:00 to 21:00 (only on the first day of opening from 11:00).
