  1. The best tea I have had in Tokyo

    The tea course was a great introduction to Japanese teas from some tea experts living in Tokyo. The location is super cool, in an interesting and well designed bar that is set up nicely for talking and sharing drinks. As we had our tea we were told the story of what we were drinking. I learned some history of tea in Japan as well as the current process of growing and preparing high quality Japanese tea. The course moves through several different types of Japanese teas from green to yellow and red, cold and hot.

    There is also a great pairing of snacks with the tea, including the best honey I have had in my life! It went really well with the red tea (in my opinion). For travelers visiting Japan this is probably the best way to experience Japanese tea that comes directly from Japanese tea farms and is not blended with imported teas. I have been living in Japan permanently for a while and I can say this is the best tea I have had here!

  2. Great Ambiance

    Everyone who wants to learn more about story of tea and taste extremely tasty, single origin, delicious teas; I would highly recommend this tea tasting event. The appetizers given with the tea were also very delicious. Ambient is also perfect for escaping the crowd and stress of the city.

    Dmitry and Marina has told us that they are always trying new methods to improve the taste of the tea and always select single origin teas by themselves which is very unique considering other regular places.

    In this tea tasting event, we were firstly given refreshing cold sencha when we first arrived. After that we have tried several other types of teas, while a short presentation of how tea is produced and different types of teas. I have learned many things from this event. I am looking forward to go there again! 🙂

  3. Very Informative Tea Tasting Event

    As a Japanese person, it was quite interesting for me to join a Japanese tea tasting event in Tokyo. I realized that I did not know many things about the Japanese tea. I really liked the presentation of Dmitry and Marina. We tasted delicious snack along with delicious Japanese teas. I also enjoyed the place as well. It was a cool sake bar located near Roppongi Hills. I will definitely suggest this event to my friends visiting Tokyo.
