The Stand


The Stand at JHL 1960w

The Stand is a takeaway drinks and snack bar at the entrance of Japan House, on the ground floor. Stop by to try authentic Japanese teas, such as hot or iced matcha, hōjicha and sencha teas, as well as hot or iced matcha latte and hōjicha latte. This summer, The Stand has also added some seasonal specials to the menu. For a Japanese take on an Italian classic, treat yourself to a matcha affogato, or for something healthy and thirst-quenching, try the cold-brewed hōjicha or genmai teas. Learn more about the varieties of Japanese tea.

Kissaten coffee is also available at The Stand. It is named after old style Japanese tearooms, kissaten, that also serve coffee and sweets. The coffee is brewed with the pour over method, using specialist kit from Japanese manufacturer HARIO. A selection of baked goods is on offer Saturday to Monday each week, which consists of seasonally flavoured cakes and biscuits with a Japanese twist.
