Sweetness in Harmony
G Clef is a tea shop and café. The tea shop specializes in oolong tea, selling some seasonal award-winning and domestic rare Japanese oolong tea. They first opened their tea shop in Kichijoji and later expanded to Koenji due to their tea quality and excellent service. You can have a free tea sampling, and you will find that they are generous regarding sampling until customers are able to make a decision. They also give free vacuum packaging for souvenirs.
The cafe menu at both locations is centered on waffles, scones and parfaits. They have seasonal waffle lunch plates (from 1000 yen) that include waffles, salad, soup and a full pot of tea. They also have a great milk tea menu, which is available as an afternoon English tea set. The parfaits are amazing and a must-try for sweets-lovers. Moreover, unlike many parfaits, G Clef also offers a unique combination of cream sweetness with the bitterness of black tea waffles and dark chocolate, which also means less calories!
