It should probably come as no surprise that the Japanese are behind what may be the first green tea cafe to turn up on these shores. The Tokyo firm, Foodx Globe Co., will soon be opening a Koots Green Tea cafe in Seattle. Four more U.S. locations are planned before the end of the year. Foodx Globe already operates nine such cafes in Japan.
Koots Green Tea will carry nine varieties of Japanese green tea and will also offer such concoctions as bubble tea, green tea lattes and assorted Japanese snacks.
