Message from Instructor

Hi! I’m Haruna Yamamoto, Japanese Tea Instructor.
Do you know recently “Ohca” – Japanese tea is getting popular as souvenir from Japan?
Maybe because of its health benefits (Yes, Japanese tea is really healthy!), cultural value, and flavor…
If you bring Japanese tea to your family and friends,
you will probably want to explain about the tea and brewing method, won’t you?
Let’s gain knowledge about tea while having a fun time!
