ASPIRATIONS AND PASSION OF
IYEMON SALON KYOTO
Tea, which was brought to Japan by the Zen master Eisai 800 years ago and first planted in a place called Toganoo,
was a beverage originally enjoyed
by the nobility and the warrior class.
The comprehensive practice of chanoyu,
or the tea ceremony, was later formalized by Sen no Rikyu.
In the middle of the Edo period (around the early 18th century), a method was devised for steaming green tea leaves,
and tea-drinking spread to the common people, becoming a central part of the culture of everyday life in Japan.
IYEMON SALON KYOTO was founded here
at Sanjo Karasuma in June of 2008.
Our desire was to carry the rich culture
behind Japan’s world-class tea
into the next generation by presenting it
in the more casual atmosphere of a modern café.
Our ongoing aspiration is to demonstrate
how tea can be the basis for designing a lifestyle,
using the café to offer suggestions for a new way of living.
"Spring Tea Party II"
will be held from April 20 th (Thursday) at 19 o'clock!
IYEMON SALON proposes
a spring tea menu using spring fruit.
While introducing tea-based
drinks and suits that fit them,
You will enjoy each marriage.
