Maiko Tea Boutique is directly managed by Maiko no Cha ("Apprentice Geisha's Tea"), a popular gyokuro (high quality green tea) shop in Kyotanabe City. There is a selection of teas for different occasions, be it for gifting or everyday use, including high quality gyokuro tea hand-rolled by masters and teas marked with the Yamashita seal. At the café, if you order a set of gyokuro tea and a tea sweet, you can learn an easy way to prepare your tea, causing many to head home with a tea pot and some tea leaves to try it out for themselves. The 750 yen matcha parfait and the matcha cheesecake, made by a local French restaurant using Maiko Tea's matcha are also popular items.
