Meet the Maker: Matcha with Camellia Sinensis
422 Detroit St.
Ann Arbor, MI 48104
Camellia Sinensis is a teahouse and tea importer located in Montréal, Quebec. Every Spring since 1998, professional tea-tasters and business partners Hugo, Jasmin, François and Kevin travel the world’s tea gardens to select the premium leaves that make up their famous catalogue. Join us for this Meet the Maker event to learn more about Camellia Sinensis and how they source their unique teas, including Japanese matcha. We will prepare and taste three different varieties of matcha as we talk with Camellia Sinensis partner and tea taster Kevin Gascoyne. Matcha can be prepared with common kitchen tools, but we are also offering a discount on our matcha tools–upgrade to the Matcha Lover’s Kit and get all the tea samples plus the traditional bowl, whisk, whisk stand, and scoop for an additional $50 (regular price $63)! “Although the traditional Japanese tea ceremony (chanoyu) can seem complex and inaccessible for most amateurs, matcha is not so complicated to prepare. These days increasingly popular for its pleasant flavors, its invigorating effect and its beneficial health properties, this bright green powdered tea is a memorable experience for anyone who is willing to risk a taste for the first time.” – Camellia Sinensis blog
