Good to the Last Drop
Outings with Shoko always lead me to two things; delicious tea and gorgeous spaces. Today’s trip to Wad Cafe in Minamisenba was no exception. Wad Cafe has that perfect balance of design and nature that immediately relaxes you. It’s easy to see why many customers hang around for a few hours slowly sipping their tea and taking in all the chill vibes.
As per usual when I go out with her, I had Shoko’s recommendation. Today, this was a pot of Gokou-cha and raspberry filled mochi. Both were delicious on their own and paired together they were to die for. If you don’t have a Shoko to assist you, Wad Cafe’s English Menu is one of the best I’ve seen and clearly describes the subtle differences in both the tea leaves and the preparation process. Along with the selection of high-end tea, Wad Cafe also offers a few select traditional Japanese desserts but doesn’t really serve full meals.
After finishing our drinks and snacks, Shoko took me upstairs to Wad Cafe’s Art Gallery, Wad+, to see their latest ceramics exhibition. Entry is free and while you’re in the building its definitely worth popping by. In fact, many of the unique tea cups that are used at Wad Cafe can be found on display in the gallery upstairs.
