What you'll do

This private tea class consists of two sessions: a Korean tea brewing session and a Japanese matcha ceremony session. The simple lessons can be applied to everyday life while still understanding basic traditional elements. You'll enjoy this peaceful teatime while listening to interesting stories on tea culture and its history. The program will be composed of the following: Session One—Korean tea brewing—in which you will learn how to brew the selected leaf tea of the day using a traditional teapot, make a second brew with a special blending. Session Two—Japanese matcha ceremony—in which a demonstration of Japanese tea ceremony will be given by the host, you'll learn to whisk your own matcha using the traditional Chawan—matcha bowl—and Chasen—bamboo matcha whisk—and you'll enjoy a special dessert of the day made with our tea.

Yenie

As a tea connoisseur and a founder of Matchacha in Seoul, I've explored Korea in search of the highest quality tea. I'm passionate about the classic tea experience with a touch of modernity and simplicity to bring together the traditional and contemporary elements of the essence of tea. I work to understand the connection between the ideas of nature, history, and ritual to curate the tea culture. I invite you to experience the ritual of tea to relax, recharge, and zen-out.
