  • Green Tea

    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

  • Tea Ceremony

    Tea Ceremony

    The Japanese tea ceremony is a centuries-old tradition closely tied to Zen Buddhist principles, and a popular way to experience Japanese culture. There are several variations on this ritual. At its base, powdered green tea (matcha) is prepared and served in accordance with strict rules. Oftentimes, wagashi (Japanese sweets) is served alongside the bitter green tea.

Cooking Class Information

In this cooking class,


you will make a traditional Japanese sweet called Nerikiri. The dough for nerikiri is white because it is made from white beans, but it is colored with dye powder from natural plants.
Knead and roll it. Spread it out into a circle, put red bean paste inside and roll it up again.
A pattern is applied to the rolled object using a tool. The patterns represent the seasons and nature of Japan.

This time you make and enjoy three nerikiri of cherry blossoms.



Place matcha powder in the tea ceremony bowl, pour hot water and whisk with a bamboo whisk.
The finished matcha has a very nice scent.

Finally, we can enjoy matcha and nerikiri!
