1 hour Class size 4 to 6     label $35

Are you trusting your tongue to taste the difference of matcha green teas?

This matcha tea tasting experience is designed for those who would like to challenge their tasting skills with super food - matcha while having fun!

茶カブキ Chakabuki is a matcha tasting game that was popular among the intellectual in Kyoto between the late Kamakura period (1185-1333) and the middle of the Muromachi period (1338-1573). In our version, Yukino will introduce three different types of matcha which you will taste.

The matcha will then be shuffled and you will do a second round of blind tasting, and attempt to guess the type of matcha. Good luck!

Japanese sweets will also be provided to complement the tea.

About Matcha
Matcha is a fine powdered green tea which is harvested and made under strict conditions to maintain high quality. Matcha green tea is loaded with powerful plant-based antioxidants known as polyphenols. Studies suggest that a particular type of polyphenol found in matcha green tea, called catechins, may kill influenza (flu) viruses.

Easily accessible by train. Free parking is also available in the area.

We had a such great time at Yukino's Chakabuki class! A unique and authentic way to experience a piece of Japan in Sydney. Yukino was extremely knowledgeable, the tea was delicious (and so were the homemade Japanese sweets), and it was overall a very relaxing time. Thanks Yukino (and Asami) :)
