Welcome to our summery Matcha Workshop on the Sunday 21st of July!

After the success of our previous matcha workshop, we want to do it again!
The workshop will take place in Trandamperiet 2nd floor, after the Sunday yoga practice.

We will answer all your questions about matcha – learn more about its origins, as well as its role in Japanese culture nowadays; talk about its production process and how it is different from regular green tea; get to know a little more about its qualities and nutritional value; and finally learn to prepare it at home – both in the most traditional way, and as an ingredient with a wide spectrum of possible uses.

Every participant will be equipped with their own bamboo whisk and a matcha bowl handmade by local ceramicist Cecilie Haaland. After the workshop it will be possible to purchase both whiskers and bowls, and take them home with you together with the tea knowledge and skills.
