Yuki would like to invite you to a Matcha Tea Matching session on the two Saturdays of 2020/11/21 and 11/28. This online event aims to be a fun and interactive experience highlighting the diverse flavors of Matcha green tea.


The session will comprise three parts: (i) Yuki demonstrating key steps of preparing Matcha tea. (ii) Participants will then whisk and taste three different Matcha's one by one, making notes about the aroma, taste, and after taste of each. (iii) Finally, participants will whisk and taste the fourth Matcha, trying to guess which of the previous three this one is.


You will need: 1 tasting pack (included in ticket price), 1 Chasen (bamboo whisk), 4 tea/soup/café-au-lait bowls (each size about 300ml), a measuring cup, a mug cup, 1L hot water, and 1 large bowl (to discard excess water).


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