A Japanese proverb says, “A hot bath refreshes the body, a hot tea refreshes the mind.” Tea is more than just a drink in Japan. In her taster course, tea master Yumiko Ono-Wiesheu demonstrates the high art of the way of tea and shows you how to prepare and enjoy matcha tea at home in a traditional way.
To participate in the tea workshop, we recommend that you purchase a tea set so that you can participate in the activities at home. You can buy the tea set in the internet shop of Mrs. Ono-Wiesheu: www.dentono.de. It consists of a tea bowl, a tea spoon, a tea tin, a bamboo broom, a linen cloth, and a pack of Matcha tea "Wakamizu" directly from Kyoto. If you already have some of the items listed, you can also buy the missing utensils separately.
