    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.

All cooking classes by Mutsuko



I am a professor at the Omotesenke school of tea ceremony. I have extensive experience teaching students and conducting formal tea events. The tea ceremony has a prestigious image, but I decided to start hosting this event because I wanted people to become more familiar with matcha tea in a simpler way.
Depending on the wishes of the guests, I will explain not only the tea ceremony but also the kimono, tea cuisine, tea utensils, tearoom/gardens, and historical background. Matcha tasting is also available. The experience is held in a Japanese-style room, but table seating is also available. The time of the experience is also tailored to the wishes of the guests.
I am happy if guests enjoy it.

★★★★★

So we booked this tea ceremony before our flight because it looked very promising, the price is very good, and the host is a tea professor. But once we arrived to kyoto, we started having second thoughts, because the location was a little far from our hotel. But we decided to go anyway. And it was, hands down, the best decision of our trip. The ceremony was so enchanting and beautiful. But other than the exquisite ceremony, we have never encountered such an amazing host. First of all, she was so professional and her passion for tea is visible. And secondly, her unbelievable generosity which we could feel even during the emails phase (before we arrived). This experience made our trip so much more fun and cultural, and I think it’s a MUST when you visit Kyoto. Thank you so much, Mutsuko. We will forever cherish you and this experience in our hearts.

The tea ceremony with Mutsuko was one of the highlights on my 3 week Japan trip. It felt great to learn more about the Japanese culture first hand. She was an amazing host and I am feeling very grateful for the experience. She took her time to explain and demonstrate the traditional ceremony in detail. I fully recommend to visit her if you have the opportunity. Thank you, Mutsuko!

host-Mutsuko

Response from Mutsuko
It would be more efficient if I invited 10 or 20 guests at a time, but I limit it to 3 because I would lose the opportunity to talk to each person. My conversation with you was very pleasant and I am implementing the advice you gave me. I will continue my efforts to let lots of people know about good matcha so that the population of Japan does not decrease.

My wife and I had the pleasure of learning Japanese traditional tea ceremony from Mutsuko-san, and it was an unforgettable experience that I highly recommend to anyone visiting Kyoto. Instead of just observing the preparation of the tea, Mutsuko-san created a whole mini-curriculum to help us understand how ususha is enjoyed in Japan. Because of the set up, we also got intimate 1:1 time to ask questions and explore our curiosities/observations. Even if you've had other tea ceremony experiences in Japan, I would say this is an awesome supplement for those wanting to learn more. Thank you for opening your home for such an enjoyable experience!

Response from Mutsuko

Mutsuko was an amazing host. She has clearly put a lot of effort into learning the art of a Japanese tea ceremony and we thoroughly enjoyed learning from her expertise. The class provided opportunities to taste different teas, learn about their history and production before experiencing an authentic tea ceremony and having the chance to make tea ourselves. We loved it - thank you!

Thank you very much for writing this heartwarming review. My English is not very good, especially my listening skills are still poor and I could not answer your questions well enough. I was sorry that you had to come all the way out here in the rain, to a place so far away, and I wondered if my workshop was worth it. Your review will sustain me tomorrow. Thank you very much. I will try to make it more enjoyable the next time you are here.

It was one of the best experiences we had in Japan! We recommend it to everyone out there! Mutsuko is a really kind person and knows extremly much about tea! We asked many questions that we thought no one would know the answer for, but she did. We even got to try an additional sort of matcha that was not included in the tasting and afterwards, we enjoyed watching her and learning from her how to make usucha in a traditional way. Really amazing! Thank you!

My husband and I took a class with Mutsuko and absolutely loved it! We loved learning about the history, the different types of tea, and all about the tea ceremony itself.

Since Louis had a lot of knowledge and experience with Chinese tea as well as matcha tea, I may not have been able to help much. Next time we will focus on how to make a good matcha tea and why.


Roman Krivochenitser, United States of America

★★★★★

This was the BEST thing we did in all of Japan. Mutsuko is nothing short of amazing - incredibly knowledgable and friendly. Her place is a little outside of the city but easy to get to and VERY worth it. She explained in great detail the tea ceremony, its significance, and how to properly perform it. This is the most authentic "non-touristy" experience you can get in Japan and worth every penny.

I recently had the privilege of attending a tea ceremony master class with Mutsuko, and I am compelled to express my profound gratitude for the unforgettable experience she provided. Although I've participated in tea ceremonies before, my understanding of the intricate world of matcha and the true essence of the tea ceremony itself was somewhat limited—until I had the pleasure of learning from Mutsuko. Prior to the master class, I wasn't a fervent admirer of matcha, but Mutsuko's expertise and passion for the art of tea left an indelible mark on my perception. She generously shared her extensive knowledge, patiently guiding me through every aspect of the tea ceremony. What sets Mutsuko apart is not just her mastery of the subject matter but her ability to convey the deeper meanings and intricacies of the ceremony, transforming it from a simple tradition into a profound, soul-enriching experience. Under Mutsuko's guidance, I not only learned the technical aspects of preparing matcha but gained a profound understanding of the spiritual and cultural significance behind every movement and gesture. It was a revelation that extended beyond the teacup, giving me a newfound appreciation for the ritual's profound connection to life. Mutsuko is not merely an instructor; she is a true sensei, imparting not only knowledge about tea but also wisdom about life. Her openness and willingness to address my myriad questions, no matter how random, created an environment where curiosity thrived. I never felt any hesitation in seeking knowledge, as Mutsuko embraced each question with grace, offering insights that extended far beyond the realm of tea. This encounter proved to be genuinely life-changing for me, and as I bid farewell, I couldn't help but feel a sense of regret that my time was limited. However, it ignited a spark within me, compelling me to return to Kyoto for an extended stay, with the sincere intention of becoming a dedicated student of Mutsuko. I yearn to delve even deeper into the profound teachings she imparts and unravel more layers of the rich tapestry that is the tea ceremony. In conclusion, Mutsuko's master class was more than a lesson; it was a journey into the heart and soul of the tea ceremony. For anyone seeking not just knowledge but a transformative experience, I wholeheartedly recommend learning from Mutsuko. It's a decision that has the potential to reshape your perception of tea, mindfulness, and life itself.

Response from Mutsuko
Thank you for your review which warms my heart and encourages me. Before the class starts, I always worry that the participants are only thinking about taking pictures and videos and not about the experience. And after the class is over, I always worry that I have skimped on knowledge and action. Thank you for dispelling that. I will learn more about the tea ceremony and practice it. I will act to make matcha a more accessible beverage around the world. Next time we meet in Japan, let's have a formal tea event.

Dear Mutzuko, thank you so much for the wonderful welcome you gave us. It was a truly unique experience! Thank you for taking so much time and explaining everything to us in detail! You are an elegant, competent and very zen person! Even if the location is not in the center of Kyoto, the experience is unique and allows you to get to know the true soul of Japan. Furthermore, you are a person who loves and puts passion into every single cup of tea! Delicious biscuits! An experience that I highly recommend!

Our tea ceremony and tasting was outstanding. I wasn't sure what to expect exactly but the visit and experience was simply outstanding. Mutsuko is a very gracious host, and speaks excellent English.

Mutsuko welcomed us (same-sex couple with a toddler) into her home with warmth, patience, and generosity. We talked about many topics and she was able to explain the intricacies of different practices to our level. The ceremony was intimate and spiritual while taking into account the toddler's needs. Mutsuko even invited us to make and have lunch with her, which was the best part. This is one of the highlights of our month-long trip in Japan! If you are craving connections with a local like we do, this is a must.

Mutsuko has been very friendly and helpful during this authentic experience. She went through different tea types and explained the multiple steps of the tea ceremony process. After some first trials, we went through the whole ceremony process and had the chance not only to appreciate some sweets and usucha macha tea but also practice our first time making it ourselves. On paper, some distance to go there but totally worth it! Go for it! Pierre

Mutsuko is a wonderful host. Trust me if you want an authentic Japanese experience this it is. She taught us about the traditions and the importance of tea ceremony, and how to to perform it.

Cristina, Italy

We had the most enchanting tea ceremony experience with Mutsuko in her lovely home in Japan. From the moment we arrived, we were captivated by the serene atmosphere of her place. The ceremony took place in a room with a picturesque view of her beautiful garden, where the sunset added a touch of magic to the surroundings. What truly stood out was Mutsuko's warm hospitality and patience. Despite our late arrival due to a small mishap with the connection to her village, she welcomed us with a gracious smile and didn't rush the ceremony. Instead, she took the time to explain every gesture and its cultural significance, allowing us to truly appreciate the art and tradition behind it. Mutsuko's dedication to sharing the essence of the tea ceremony was evident in her detailed explanations, making us feel like we were not just participants but also learners of this ancient art. Her passion for the culture shone through, enriching the experience. Her generosity and kindness extended beyond the tea ceremony. If you're looking for a unique and authentic tea ceremony experience that's both enlightening and immersive, we highly recommend Mutsuko. Her hospitality and dedication to preserving and sharing Japanese culture make her an exceptional host. Thank you!
