Japanese Tea Workshops in Berlin 16th-17th November, 2017

Obubu is coming to Berlin for the first time! Hosted and supported by the newly established Berlin Tea Academy we are bringing you authentic Japanese tea all the way from Wazuka, Kyoto, Japan. Are you wondering what exactly is Matcha? How to make a good cup of Sencha? Or what is special about Hojicha? We have something just for you – three Japanese tea workshops: Sencha Workshop and Hojicha workshop on 16th November and Matcha Workshop on 17th November.

Sencha Workshop

Sencha is the most common Japanese tea, invented about 300 years ago. Both in Japan and around the world, though, people are still pondering how to make a good cup of Sencha. This workshop will give you hands on experience with this delicious tea. Not only you can learn about Japanese tea cultivation and traditions, but also taste a range of teas along the way and learn to brew a delicious cup of Sencha!

Hojicha Workshop

Hojicha is a casual roasted Japanese tea, with an inviting roasted aroma and a delightful taste. It is, however, little known outside of Japan. This workshop will introduce this unique Japanese tea to you. During the workshop, you will be able to learn more about Japanese tea production and current situation. You will also have a chance to roast your own Hojicha and compare the taste of a few green and roasted teas.

Matcha Workshop

In the recent years Matcha has become really popular and now you can find Matcha lattes and deserts all around the world. Matcha, however, is not just a recent sensation, it has a long history in Japan. This workshop will provide an introduction to Matcha, showing how it is produced and explaining the culture surrounding it. In addition to tasting several kinds of teas you will also have a chance to make your own cup to Matcha!

Workshops will be led by Matsu-san – a charismatic Japanese tea instructor and vice president of Obubu with more than 12 years of experience in Japanese tea, and Simona – a dedicated practitioner of Japanese tea ceremony and Obubu’s international department lead with 5 years of experience in Japanese tea.

Don’t miss a chance to try some beautiful Japanese teas and learn directly from the source.
