Co budeš dělat

While sitting around our circular tea tasting bar, I'll guide you in a tasting of three different ceremonial-grade matcha teas, including two thin teas (usucha) and one thick (koicha). Before we get started drinking tea, I'll start with a brief introduction of the history and traditional context of matcha tea. For the first bowl of matcha, I'll prepare it for you, meanwhile demonstrating how to whisk the perfect bowl of matcha. After that, everyone is hands-on, as you'll get to practice making your own matcha with all the authentic tea ware.

The Japanese Tea Ceremony in its traditional context is an incredibly formal event and can be very difficult to access, especially in the West. My intention is to loosen up on the formality while staying rooted in the traditional context, taking what I've learned and passing it on in a casual, accessible setting. Tea is all about the joy of offering and appreciating; by the end of our matcha workshop, you will leave with the experience necessary to prepare an authentic, delicious bowl of matcha in your everyday life to be enjoyed by yourself and others (not to mention having tasted the highest-quality matcha there is!).

Hello! My name is Mike and I'm on staff at Teance Fine Teas, a globally acclaimed teahouse in Berkeley, CA. For some years before, I lived in Zen Buddhist temples where I also trained in Cha Do, the Japanese Tea Ceremony. I studied formally in the Urasenke lineage with my teacher, Meiya Wender Sensei at Sowing the Moon Teahouse. I have participated by invitation in international intensive tea seminars where I have trained with leading teachers from all over the world. I'm passionate about tea in all its forms and traditions, and look forward to sharing my experience with you!

We were lucky to be the first guests for this experience. My partner and I are Matcha enthusiasts, so we jumped on this experience when we first saw it online. Mike is very knowledgeable about Matcha and tea in general. We got to learn how to make matcha and practiced during the experience - it's a very unique experience. The experience was held in the tea shop, so at the end we also got a generous discount in buying our own matcha set. We both enjoyed it very much. I was definitely caffeine high by the end since we got 3 different matcha (and I finished all of them). Make sure you drink a lot water if you are sensitive as well.
