This is a fun, hands-on experience so you'll not only discover the rules and etiquette, you'll also make and taste your own delicious cup of healthy powdered green tea. Yummy Japanese sweets will also be served. ※Please note that the address on this page is our meeting point. We provide the detailed information when the booking is confirmed.
