Focused Green Tea & Matcha Tasting Workshop

May 05, 2019

Tea Repertoire will run a workshop on Green Tea, with a focus on Japanese green tea and matcha. Join us at Heal’s on the 16th of May.

Learn about Japanese green Tea in London

With a special focus on the art of Japanese green tea making, you will learn more about different types of green teas in Japan. You will learn that Japanese green tea varies a lot in terms of their processing methods and cultivars and also learn about differences between Japanese and Western style brewing methods to make a perfect cup of Japanese green tea.

Comparative Green Tea tasting: Japanese vs. Korean, Chinese and Taiwanese green teas 

We will also have a comparative green tea tasting session to learn about  green teas from other growing regions such as Korea, China and Taiwan. You will learn how different terroir, different tea processing method and cultivar affect the aroma and flavour profiles of different green teas.
