Join Momo Yoshida, the founder of Momo Tea, on a journey into the world of Japanese tea. In this fun, hands-on workshop you will get to discover and savor the beauty and variety of Japanese teas. Momo will introduce you to a wide array of Japanese tea, including Sencha, Hojicha, Genmaicha, Gyokuro, Matcha, along with this year’s Shincha, or the first-picked tea of the year, which she has just recently brought back from Japan.

There will be ample opportunity to examine the particular characteristics and different flavor profiles based on growing regions, while Momo gives a tea brewing demonstration, sharing tips for making the perfect cup of tea at home.

You will also look into the art of “pairing” tea with food and utensils in the tradition of a Japanese Afternoon Tea. Food will be served with 3 Tier-Tray made by local potter Secret Teatime. Momo will present various sweets and few evening snacks such as tea-flavored Onigiri, Scones, Daifuku, Macarons, and more.

As a finale, you will get a taste of the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. After getting a hands-on experience on whisking a bowl of matcha, you will savor an exquisite cup of ceremonial grade Matcha paired with traditional sweets. It will be an unforgettable journey for all tea lovers.
