  • 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 wagashi making and tea ceremony experience, you will learn how to make mochi (rice cakes) using glutinous rice flour. Using the mochi you will learn how to make strawberry daifuku (strawberry wrapped in bean paste) and dango (mochi balls on skewers)+ two kinds of seasonal "nerikiri wagashi"—traditional Japanese sweets. We'll start off with the dough making then you will color and shape the dough into a seasonal motif. After you've made the wagashi, you are able to taste your creations with a bowl of matcha green tea or take them with you in a box.
This Class starts at 10 am and 2 pm on weekdays only.

I have always been interested in the art of wagashi-making and I was delighted to be able to participate in a hands-on workshop during my recent trip to Japan. I love how the class was kept small and also conducted from a comfortable home environment. Miyuki was very professional and patient and it was so interesting to learn more about the culture and techniques of creating the different types of wagashi. I attended the workshop with my friend who is actually a local Japanese lady and she too said that she had enjoyed herself and learned lots. Thank you so much Miyuki for making my trip even more pleasant and memorable!
