TEA MASTER

About TEA MASTER

Tea Master is a Japanese tea shop and café located in the Little Tokyo neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles.

Japanese tea has been sold out of the same storefront for over a decade, with the café portion of the business opening in 2014. A former employee took over the location in 2016, rebranding it as Tea Master and opening in November of that year.
The shop’s owner, Daigoro San, is a native of Tokyo and a student of the Japanese tea ceremony’s Edosenke school.

MISSION

Tea Master aspires to be more than a business. It hopes to play an integral role in the burgeoning Los Angeles Tea culture, where both traditional and modern approaches to the world’s second most popular beverage (after water) can exist side by side rather than in competition. In this city’s diverse tea culture, we want to present the essence of Japanese tea culture whether you are Angelinos or just visiting town.

The implication is that there is no right or wrong way to enjoy tea: whether drank in powder, whole-leaf, or bagged form -- or consumed as an ingredient in food and other products.

The name Tea Master is meant to be open ended. While we seek mastery with the products in our café, preparing tea and tea products for maxim enjoyment, we also invite you to be the tea master.

Cras mi tortor, laoreet id ornare et, accumsan non magna. Maecenas vulputate accumsan velit. Curabitur a nulla ex. Nam a tincidunt ante. Vitae gravida turpis. Vestibulum varius nulla non nulla scelerisque tristique.
Mauris id viverra augue, eu porttitor diam. Praesent faucibus est a interdum elementum. Nam varius at ipsum id dignissim. Nam a tincidunt ante lorem. Pellentesque suscipit ante at ullamcorper pulvinar neque porttitor.
