Date


Saturday, April 12th

 

 

Event Details:  Fascinating Points


Japanese tea (“Nihon-cha”) is most common beverage in Japan and many types of tea is sold in PET bottles and cans in stores and vending machines. But not like these bottles and cans, if you try to brew the Japanese tea at home, the flavor and taste would differ each time which can be good/bad.


In this event, we will demonstrate the variety of flavors that can be produced to suit personal preferences and will teach the tips on how to make delicious green tea such as the selection of water quality (Hard Water, Soft water), Leaf-to-Water ratio, perfect water temperature and the steeping techniques etc. Let’s become the master of Japanese tea and make the perfect cup of tea for yourself!!!



 What is Japanese tea?

Literally it means, “Any tea produced in Japan”. However, usually “Japanese tea (Nihon-cha)” means Sencha because Sencha (regular green tea) accounts for about 80% of the tea production in Japan.

Event Organizer


Japan Tea Instructor Association, Saitama Branch

 


Instructor


Haruna Yamamoto, Japan Tea Instructor

She was born and grew up in Sayama area (Saitama), where is famous for its local product, Sayama-cha. Maybe because of this (or not?), I really love drinking tea even when I was very young.

After becoming a certified Japan Tea Instructor in 2011, she has participated in numbers of tea related events as a staff/organizer to promote Japanese tea, especially to Non-Japanese people.

I hope you enjoy the event!
