Brewing Green Tea

Arigato Japan is now hosting virtual experiences from Japan to share with the world online!

What we will do :

During this online experience I will share the magic of green tea, and it’s special place in Japanese culture. We will learn together the easy brewing techniques that will result in a perfect cup of healthy green tea. 

 

Learn about 

  • Why tea is so healthy
  • How to brew every cup so it is delicious and NOT bitter
  • All about the many different kinds of tea out there
  • How to source great green tea around the world. 
  • Tea seasons
  • The secret relationship between green tea and seaweed (nori) 
  • Great green tea pairings (even tips on green tea cocktails) 

 

Then while we sip together we can share my hidden secret tea spots, tea tips, and tea history PLUS answer any questions you have about Japan, Tokyo, Tea and Travel!  

Let’s share a relaxing cup, get to know each other and connect across the globe. Teatime in Tokyo will bring us together!  I will share tea secrets and tips only locals here know! I live in Sangenjaya Which in Japanese means “3 Tea Shops” my neighborhood was literally founded around green tea! Come have a cup with me.

 

And you will know by the end that you have a local friend in Japan!

Join our local expert, Lauren: 

 

With 24 years living and loving Japan and Japanese culture and a background in the restaurant and travel business I have been sharing my passion with visitors for years! The team I work with has hosted over 27,000 guests on walking food tours. We have a 5/5 rating on TripAdvisor with over 1360 positive reviews. I am personally a tea-expert and want to share the best of green tea culture as well as Japanese Foodie culture. Tokyo is arguably one of the most amazing food and travel destinations in the world. It is my goal to share stories and give guests a sense of the best Japan has to offer while sharing my tips for brewing the PERFECT cup of Japanese Green Tea together.

Where we will be: 

I live in the Setagaya area of Tokyo, Just a short train ride from the heart of the city. I have traveled around Japan trying different teas and learning from experts. With many visits to Shizuoka one of the largest tea growing regions in Japan, and study trips to Uji, in Kyoto the home of Japan’s best Matcha, I will be able to share tea regions to inspire your future visit to Japan!

 

 

What to Bring:

  • Your own green tea of some kind (tea bag, loose tea, etc.) 
  • Whatever you need to brew your tea (tea cup and tea pot)
  • Hot water
  • All your questions about tea and tea travel in Japan

 

 

Notes: 

We will be hosting this online experience on ZOOM. Please be ready about 5 mins before to test out your connection. For the tea brewing time it is best if you are someplace close to your hot water and tea supplies! But feel free to join and learn from anywhere you are comfortable!
