Yuki would like to invite you to a Matcha Tea Matching session on Saturday 2020/11/28. Through this event, we would like to highlight the diverse flavors of Matcha green tea, in a fun and interactive experience.

The session will comprise three parts: (i) Yuki demonstrating key steps of preparing Matcha tea, and in the process discussing connections between Japanese teas and Japanese culture in general. (ii) Participants will then taste and contrast several different Matcha's, then taste them again but with the order mixed up, trying to guess which one is which from what they could remember about the aroma, taste, and after taste of each Matcha. (iii) Finally, participants will whisk/prepare their own bowl of Matcha and taste it. Wagashi (Japanese sweets) will be served.

The tea matching game [part (ii)] is inspired by a historical tea game in Japan called Tou-Cha, which later evolved into Chakabuki.

The session will be held in English and Japanese. Yuki can speak Mandarin and can understand Cantonese reasonably well.

Please note the following measures to minimize COVID risks:

(i) To observe the COVID gathering limit, three sessions will be held on 2020/11/28 (up to 3 participants per session): Session One (11:00-12:30) Session Two (13:30-15:00) Session Three (15:30-17:00). When you purchase your ticket, please choose one out of the three sessions. Please note this arrangement may change if the gathering limit changes. If that happens we’ll notify participants ahead of time.

(ii) All participants and Yuki will keep their face masks on at all times except during tea tasting. Temperature checks will be performed at venue entrance, and everyone will be asked to wash their hands. All utensils and tools will be thoroughly cleaned.
