The addition of authentic tea flavor
to an elegant evening drink
will make for a special night out.


Evening Tea Cocktail (yoi-cha)

This is an original craft beverage made by coating tea leaves in liquor such as gin and vodka to bring out flavour. This is a fresh new way, to enjoy the wide variety of quality teas available in Shizuoka, the number one tea producing area of Japan.



Mohei Honda

Message from master tea maker, Mohei Honda: The concept of the Tea Change Project comes from the desire to share with people the enjoyment of drinking tea and the positive difference it can make to their lives.
One of the main ways of communicating this message is through the Evening Tea Cocktail (yoi-cha) offering.
Coating tea leaves in liquor may sound simple, but it is another meaningful way of enjoying the taste of tea. Tea production and drinking a variety of teas are parts of Shizuoka’ s long history.
It is our pleasure to offer you our selection of Evening Tea Cocktails (yoi-cha) created with the best tea that Shizuoka has to offer.
