Not only do you get to enjoy tasting different types of tea and eating exquisite snacks but you also get to learn all about the beauty of Japanese tea in Tokyo in this invigorating event. The activity starts with the organizers, Marina and Dmitry showing a comprehensive and special presentation which includes informative slides, facts, and pictures to show. In here, one will learn all about Japanese tea from its history to its variety and most importantly, its health benefits to people. While the presentation is on-going, sencha will be served two ways – hot and cold – to teach the guests how to determine the difference it makes with taste and smell with the temperature of water used. With the talks of various types of tea, the organizers will also explain the big difference between matcha and sencha.
The organizers believe that every person has a different taste palette and it’s best for them to look for the best tasting snack to pair with their best tasting tea. They encourage the guests to pair the served snacks with their tea on their own. With wild honey, dried fruits, nuts, and yokan (jelly-cake), the snacks have different flavors and textures and if the guests have any question, the organizers are happily ready to answer and help. Hoji tea, which is roasted green tea, will also be served along with the traditional oolong tea, which is a representative of black tea. This event is highly recommended for enthusiasts and to those who want to learn more about Japanese tea.

Literally means six trees in Japanese, Roppongi is well known for having a bustling nightlife and is usually packed with foreigners from all over the world. Pubs, restaurants, and clubs surround the place with vigor. Its neighboring districts – Hiroo, Azabu, and Akasaka – is home to many expat communities and embassies. Two of Tokyo’s largest development projects are also located here, which are Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Midtown which forever changed the façade of old Roppongi and placed a much better appeal to its locals and tourists.
