This is a wonderful, deeply informative seminar for the tea lover and especially the tea-curious--or better, the tea- / history- / botanically- / aesthetically-curious. Marcin delivers a fabulous talk that elegantly, engagingly reflects a ton of preparation. I'm thrilled Context offered this.
As a daily consumer of tea, albeit black, I have wondered about the green teas that are also in my life. Marcin covered everything you would want to know about Japanese green tea - history, cultivation and production processes, vocabulary, contemporary Japanese views on green tea. Very organized, well delivered presentation.
We love green tea. Marcin gave us both the historical story, but a perspective on types, flavors, water temperature etc. we loved matcha on our trip to Japan. Tried the Kit Kats, and ice cream as well as the teas. Many Thanks, Marcin.
Very interesting, detailed and fascinating about how and where tea developed.
This course was fascinating! Mr. Tatarczuk was a very engaging instructor and provided a great overview of the history and cultural implications of all things Japanese tea.
