The most widely consumed drink in the world, tea nonetheless retains a certain mystique thanks to its countless varieties, complex cultivation, healthful makeup, and mythical origins - all stemming from a single species of plant.
Join us for an in-person tea-tasting workshop at the rikumo concept store in Ardmore and enjoy a selection of our fresh-brewed green tea, plus tips for making the perfect matcha and a little history behind Japanese teas. Attendees will sample three distinct varieties of loose leaf green tea - two served iced, one served hot - following a demonstration of traditional brewing techniques. Afterward, all participants will make their own bowl of ceremonial-grade matcha under guidance from our staff.
At the end of the event, everyone will receive a free rikumo tote bag containing a complimentary stick of binchotan charcoal (an effective and all-natural water purifier) and a 10% discount on in-store tea purchases that day. Whether you're new to the world of tea or a well-steeped connoisseur, you won't want to miss this tasty - and informative - gathering.
