In Japan, a tea house offers a welcome break from the stresses of everyday life. It’s a place where you can meet friends for leisurely conversation and the authentic ritual of green tea preparation and refreshment. Gen Sou En Tea House brings this rich cultural tradition to Boston, adding a modern bar and a full-service restaurant. In both our café and our full-service restaurant, we seamlessly blend traditional green tea preparation with a Japanese-inspired menu that includes tea-infused specialties like matcha-dusted salmon and matcha mint fondant. Enjoy breakfast or a casual lunch at the café, inventive sake cocktails and small plates at our bar, or an elegant meal at our restaurant—each is a unique experience that delivers on the tradition of tea house hospitality.

Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
The retail items are not priced, which is awkward. Also, the new seating is not optimal or friendly. But the tea is good.
Knew how to use Nift and delicious food
The customer service was superb. The aesthetics of the restaurants were facisnating along with the food. I’ll definitly return!
The layout was a little confusing. There’s a dine in section and a cafe section but the areas are not marked and there are only specific spots you can sit in. And the hosts don’t explain it to you when you get in. They treat you as if you’ve been there before but to first time customers like me it can be confusing.
the customer service was very nice. overall nice spot in every way.
Peaceful ambiance and great serving staff
It’s a lovely place, with good tea and food. The environment is really nice.
