What you'll do

Would you like to try the BEST-quality matcha green tea in Kyoto? There are many kinds of tea in the world, but I use one of the best ones. I special order my matcha green tea directly from a farmer, so that it's always very fresh and keeps the best quality. Don't miss this chance to try it. The tea ceremony experience itself is not only about drinking matcha green tea and eating sweets—there are more important pieces that I will teach you. I will begin by giving an introduction about manners of the guests in the tea ceremony. Then I will give a demonstration by performing the steps. Finally, you will have a chance to make your own tea during a hands-on activity. You'll receive a certificate when you've finished. Let's learn how to make and drink matcha green tea together.

The session include the following activities
1. Introduction
2.Demonstration
3.Hands-on experience
4.You may get a certificate after the session

*Please let me know if you came to Japan as special occasion, such as birthday or honeymoon or anniversary!

I taught Japanese in Australia and New Zealand for several years. I also had the chance to teach the art of tea ceremony in Australia, New Zealand, England, and America. I've been staying in Kyoto for almost five years to teach tea ceremony to non-Japanese visitors. I started studying tea ceremony from the age of 13. I am also "2017 Miss Wine Kyoto" a finalist of 2017 “Miss Wine” contest representing Kyoto prefecture.

We had a great time doing the tea ceremony with Ryokufu. She is very sweet and teaches you how to say and do the appropriate things for a matcha ceremony. We also enjoyed the delicious matcha she prepared for us and got a chance to make our own. She included thoughtful touches, like a gold paper tray for the new year and small gifts for us. We learned a lot, felt very welcome and had a good time!

This is an informal tea ceremony where you will feel comfortable to learn about the tradition and make your own Matcha. We booked last minute on a rainy day which was very convenient! After this introduction, I am curious to experience the tea ceremony in a more formal setting. This experience felt like meeting a friend in her home.
