Join tea consultant, Alexis Siemons, for a steeped adventure that will take a closer look at Japanese green teas as we welcome the vibrant spring season.
- Sip traditional and classic Japanese green teas (including sencha, genmaicha, hojicha).
- Learn proper brewing techniques and the stories behind the delicate leaves.
- Treat your taste buds to suggested pairings of savory cookies, goat cheese and a delightful mache & citrus salad with a bright matcha green tea dressing (with recipe demo).
- Leave with a new appreciation for the green tea steep and a gift bag* with samples to enjoy at home (*one lucky guest will receive a Takeya Flash Chill iced tea maker in his or her gift bag).
