Japanese Tea Tasting

Learn about Japanese green tea and the Japanese tea culture and enjoy making and tasting a variety of flavourful teas, both hot and cold-brewed. Each tea has its own flavour and qualities and must be made correctly in order to appreciate these. Correct steeping times and temperatures; along with an understanding of the subtle aroma, flavours, colors and other properties of each tea will be discussed. You will work with authentic Japanese teaware and enjoy an entertaining, relaxing and educational session with a Japanese tea expert. As is the Japanese custom, you will also enjoy snacks and tea sweets as part of your experience. A great way to spend time with family and friends, or as a team building event!
