Simple Matcha Ritual Workshop

Hi. I enjoyed the Matcha Ritual Workshop very much! I learned so many interesting things about Japanese tea ceremony and how to incorporate it into/adapt it for a more casual, everyday ritual. It was a really meaningful experience that I am still thinking about several weeks later. I would love to attend more tea workshops. And the ICHA TEA space is beautiful. I hope to visit again to learn about/try some Chinese tea too.
