Enjoy local tea in Shizuoka

Suruga Marketing and Tourism Bureau



In the heart of the mountainous Ryogouchi tea farm area of Shizuoka sits Green Eight Cafe, a Japanese black tea cafe run by a neighboring tea processing factory. Originally established by eight farmers in 1995, the factory is now run by the next generation, who brought with them new ideas on tea production.


Unlike most tea producers in the area, which focus on green tea, Green Eight has been developing a variety of black teas, finding innovative processing techniques to make them less bitter but still full-bodied in flavor.


The Green Eight Cafe, a cozy space with an interior featuring recycled wood, driftwood, and vintage furniture, serves 30 different types of black and green Japanese teas, many of which are also available to buy in-store.


Try Green Eight’s signature black tea flavored with citrus fruit, or choose one of the cafe’s original desserts, which include black tea pancakes with a choice of toppings and black tea sundaes loaded with fresh fruit and chocolate. For a stunning scenic experience, visitors can take their treats to the Tea Terrace, a viewing platform with tree stump tables that is surrounded by Ryogouchi’s rolling tea fields.
