Bar entrepreneur Matt Bax (of Bar Americano and the currently hibernating Bar Exuberante) is out to brew the perfect cuppa, as part of a new Japanese-inspired tea experience at Supernormal in Flinders Lane. An idea more than 15 years in the making, Samu is described by Bax as a "contemporary tea meditation...a place where people will have an opportunity to taste real matcha in a unique space".

Available as part of the restaurant's regular lunch and dinner service, Samu will see guests seated in a custom-built teahouse complete a with wooden seating bar where they'll enjoy ceremonial-grade matcha and wagayashi-style sweets.

"Samu is a one-of-a-kind experience; one I am looking forward to sharing with my guests," said Bax.

Running for two weeks only from July 18-29, the service is available for groups of up to five people and costs $9 per tea (and accompanying sweet treat). Expect it to be, like all Bax creations, more than a little weird and wonderful.
