Basic RGB


Japanese tea is a fascinating world with many different tea kinds and producing regions. This provides a lot of space for both personal and professional exploration. While there is a lot of information about tea online, it is often confusing and sometimes even contradictive. Our tea courses offer a detailed and clear explanation on a variety of topics from tea history and culture, to tea production, various tea kinds and the best ways to prepare them.


In addition to that, we believe that the best way is learning by doing, so all of our courses include a range of practical exercises. Therefore, joining our tea courses will not only help you deepen your understanding of Japanese tea, but also gain practical experience with it, that will prove helpful for your current and future tea projects.
