Part time jobs for foreigners & students in Tokyo Japan, in Alfred Tea.

About Alfred Tea

Born on the charming and tree-lined streets of Melrose Place just a few doors down from the original Alfred Coffee location, Alfred Tea Room is a popular one-stop shop for all things tea – for locals, bloggers and celebrities alike. Known for both its “Insta-worthy” aesthetic as well as its supreme commitment to quality, this pink and brass-laden hangout offers favorites including ceremonial matcha lattes, a full line of house made milk teas (don’t forget to add boba!), our signature Alfred Pink Drink, as well as a large selection of fine teas sourced from around the globe. As Alfred Tea Room’s now famous neon slogan “Tea, Yes. You, Maybe.” Proves, tea is no longer just a beverage – it’s officially a lifestyle.

Now, Cafe Company Inc., a Tokyo-based cafe & restaurant operator, will bring Alfred Tea from LA to Tokyo. Two locations will open simultaneously in Omotesando and in Shinjuku on Oct 31. We are now looking for bilingual international staff to work part-time here! Students and those with no experience are welcome!
