Introduction to Matcha Private Workshop

 While matcha has become one of the most popular drinks around the world, from that matcha latte at your neighbourhood cafe to the decorative garnish in molecular gastronomy, it actually has a long history — perhaps much more so than you thought. Contrary to its "made in Japan" label that first comes to mind, matcha actually originated from China during the Tang Dynasty. The ensuing Song Dynasty popularised the drink in the 10-13th centuries, but it was not until a Japanese monk planted green tea seeds in the temple grounds in Kyoto in the early 1900s that the drink became truly "Japanese tea".

 Join us to explore the tradition and culture behind Japan’s famous beverage, and learn to make your own matcha!
