Ochadozo.com is delighted to introduce our Japanese tea course series, CHANOWA.

Our first CHANOWA course is an Introduction to Matcha basics!

"Spring Tea Gathering I : Matcha Basics", comprises a 4-class series during four Saturday afternoons in April 2023, focusing on Matcha and Japanese tea related topics. Participants will learn to set up, use utensils, whisk, serve/drink, and wrap up, so that you can serve Matcha to your guests on your own. Seasonality is an important theme throughout this course, with a focus on spring and early summer.

★Examples of topics covered:

Class 1 (2023-4-1) Matcha, utensil, and water handling|tea words e.g. 和敬清寂|touch & feel (utensils)|whisking techniques
