Virtual Sencha (Green Tea) Tasting

Join d:matcha live from Wazuka (between Uji and Nara) Japan to experience five varieties of sencha (green tea) grown organically in their tea fields. Learn why Wazuka is considered to be one of the best tea growing locations in Japan, the differences in the tea varieties, the science behind tea growing, how to properly brew green tea, and more.

Tea will be shipped via DHL directly from d:matcha’s fields in Wazuka to your home shortly before your session. You’ll connect with their expert via Zoom and enjoy a leisurely conversation as you brew and taste the five varieties of sencha. Please note that this is *not* a Japanese tea ceremony. The focus is on understanding the differences in teas, much like a wine tasting.

Teachers from all disciplines are invited to participate; STEM teachers in particular will find many points of connection to their teaching.

This experience is only available to in-service K-12 educators (classroom teachers, specialists and administrators) in the United States. We pay a per-person fee of around $100 in advance for each participant, so please double-check your schedule to make sure you’re free at the time you sign up for. No-shows may be restricted from participating in future FCCEAS NCTA programs.
