April 14th, 7-9PM

You are formally invited to our third installment of the STEEP! Regional Tasting Series.   For those of you who have been to the Indian and Chinese tea tastings, we would love to see you again!  If you haven’t been to a STEEP! Tasting yet, but enjoy the stuff you drink when you go out for sushi… we look forward to meeting you!

In 1191, a Zen priest named Myoan Eisai brought Chinese tea seeds back to his home in southern Japan. Following that important year in tea history, Japan has become home to some of the most valued teas in the world. This tasting will highlight the diverse range of Japanese teas, brought to us by the award winning tea importer Rishi.

Come and learn about the nuances of Japanese green teas (not to mention the fascinating history and beautiful tea ceremony tradition) with our master tea drinkers, Katie and Vanessa.  We will taste Sencha, Houjicha, Genmaicha, Matcha, along with a few exclusive teas brought to the deli for this night alone!  As we taste our teas, we will teach you how to get the best results when you are steeping at home.  And since no tea ceremony would be complete without food, we will taste a few traditional Japanese treats that satisfy your stomach and tickle your taste buds.

We hope to see you there!
