Note: This page is from a previous year’s HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market event, please see our schedule for an up-to-date list of performances and activities.
This winter, rediscover the quintessentially British drink of tea with our HYPER Creative Studio workshop, “Tea Experience”. Delving deep into the tea experience, TeaHouse seeks to facilitate a conversation around the sensory experience of drinking tea, from the tantalizing aromas to the subtle flavours to even the lingering after taste. Please consider yourself warned as this will be no afternoon tea session; it will be a serious, in-depth exploratory journey.
Workshop guests will be tasting and discussing different types of tea, engaging in a dialogue with the workshop presenters and other guests, thus gaining new understanding and appreciation of this beloved British drink. Over the course of the workshop, three different types of tea will be available for sampling: a green tea, an oolong tea, and a sparkling jasmine tea.
Having gained the knowledge necessary to enjoy tea to the fullest, from the nature of the tiny tea leaf to the rich and ancient history of tea and on brewing the perfect cup of tea, guests will gain a new appreciation of each step of the artistic dance that is tea.
Please note that all Creative Studio activities have a limit of 50 participants, operating on a first-come, first-served basis.
