Wagashi (Nerikiri), green tea matcha

  • 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.

Reviews of Cooking Class

Tania, Russia


I really enjoyed your autumn wagashi making class! You're a great teacher and I liked that you divided the lesson in easy steps and I made three pretty sweets all by myself under your guidance. Thank you for sharing lots of useful tips! I was glad to meet such an open and friendly person and I enjoyed our chat about the Japanese food and culture. I had a great time and will continue making wagashi at home. Thank you and I wish you all the best in 2020! :)
