Green Tea: More than a drink

Green Tea

A Whole Universe

IKKYU the Magazine is your new source of information about the amazing universe of Japanese green tea.

‘Ikkyu’ means « one break »: enjoying a steaming cup of tea should be all about taking some time for yourself. Slow down, have a cup of tea – and take a trip to Japan!

Green tea is a delicious healthy drink, but not only.

It is a world, a culture and a way of life that are worth exploring – and this what IKKYU the Magazine is here for.

In the minds of many, Japan and green tea are closely associated. Images of powerful samurai and elegant geisha pop up alongside a bowl of emerald matcha. But green tea is actually much more than matcha, and is definitely for everyone!
