[W]hile Nana’s Green Tea has more than 80 locations throughout Japan and China, the matcha-slinging chain is still relatively unknown to many American consumers. Nana’s dipped its toes into the U.S. market by opening a location in Waikiki back in late 2016, and is now taking the full plunge by opening its first mainland location in Seattle.

The chain has become prominent for its unique matcha blend, which is made from tea grown on the company’s own farms, and its food, including hand pies and sandwiches filled with Japanese comfort foods, a matcha warabi mochi parfait, which is somewhat like a Japanese halo-halo, and scratch-made matcha-infused French pastries.

Eater Seattle reports that the café is expected to open within the next two weeks.
