IPPODO Tea Experts Live Japanese Tea Workshops
This November, Plantation by teakha presents a Japanese tea workshop series by IPPODO TEA CO. from Kyoto, one of the oldest purveyors of premium Japanese green teas.
For three hundred years, IPPODO has been providing green tea from the fields around Kyoto, an area renowned for producing the highest grade of green tea in Japan. For this workshop series, Plantation has invited Ms. Chisato Kobayashi and Mr. Axel Snow from IPPODO to visit Hong Kong, offering a rare chance for Japanese tea enthusiasts in Hong Kong to meet the faces behind the esteemed brand.
What Can We Expect in the Workshops?
We will be showing live demonstrations in making and tasting different categories of Japanese green teas, ranging from Gyokuro, Sencha, Bancha to Matcha. Participants will be led by Ms. Chisato Kobayashi and Mr. Axel Snow through the mysterious land of Japanese green tea, to learn everything from the history to the appreciation of the fine tastes.
【 Introduction to Japanese Teas 】
Starting with the history of Japanese tea, this workshop will be showing live demonstrations in making and tasting Gyokuro, Sencha, Matcha, and Bancha. Ippodo tea-inspired pastries created by teakha will be served at the end of each class.
3rd November (Saturday) | 11am – 12:30pm | English | $650 | 10pax
【 A Closer Look at Japanese Green Teas 】
For those with a basic knowledge of Japanese green teas or those who have attended our Introduction Workshop, these in-depth classes are an insight into the special qualities of four premium Japanese green teas – matcha and gyokuro; sencha and bancha. For example, matcha is something we come across often in Hong Kong, adorning desserts or drinks in hipster cafes. Yet how are they traditionally consumed and properly prepared?
Our hosts from IPPODO will provide answers to these questions and offer live demonstrations in making and tasting these teas. Students will also be able to experience hands on the art of preparing such fine teas while Japanese tea-inspired pastries created by teakha will be served at the end of each class.
