Toronto’s matcha-craze continues. Tsujiri arrived in early March to join a number of other Asian-inspired cafes to open up Toronto’s downtown core. It is not too far from the always-popular Uncle Tetsu Matcha cafe and Cheese cake shop over at 147 Dundas St. W (near Elizabeth St.). Tsujiri is a purveyor of tea originally from Uji, near Kyoto, Japan known for its high-quality tea leaves. It has been in business for an incredible 155 years. Since then it has opened up cafes in a number of places in Asia. This is Tsujiri’s first shop in North America.
The space that Tsujiri occupies used to be a convenience store. But now, it comprises of neutral wood finishes and bright green accents reminiscent of its products: matcha- and tea-based deserts.
Lineups have been insane….
