  • 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

Japanese sweets are mainly sweets called “Sakuramochi"made from rice and anko.The glutinous rice is colored pink to make it a cherry blossom. Enjoy the fragrance wrapped in salted cherry leaves.
Matcha with Japanese sweets is the best tea ceremony because it becomes easy to drink unsweetened matcha by foaming and making it mild.
