Description

During this online experience I will share the magic of green tea, and it’s special place in Japanese culture. We will learn together the easy brewing techniques that will result in a perfect cup of healthy green tea. I will let you know:

  • Why tea is so healthy
  • How to brew every cup so it is delicious and not bitter
  • The different kinds of tea
  • How to source great green tea around the world 
  • The different tea seasons
  • The secret relationship between green tea and seaweed (nori)
  • Great green tea pairings (even tips on green tea cocktails) 

While we sip the green tea together, I will share my hidden secret tea spots, tea tips, and history of the tea. 

Come join me in this session over a relaxing cup of green tea. Tea time in Tokyo will bring us together. I will share secrets and tips only known to the locals. I live in a 'Sangenjaya', which in Japanese means '3 tea shops'. The neighbourhood was literally discovered around green tea.

Meet your Host
Arigato Japan

With 24 years of living and loving Japan and Japanese culture, along with a background in restaurant and travel business, I have been sharing my passion with visitors for years! The team I work with has hosted over 27,000 guests on walking and food tours. I am personally a tea-expert and want to share the best of green tea culture as well as Japanese Foodie culture. Tokyo is arguably one of the most amazing food and travel destinations in the world. It is my goal to share stories and give guests a sense of the best Japan has to offer while sharing my tips for brewing the perfect cup of Japanese Green Tea together.
