Nice to meet you. Our names are Keisuke & Olga and we live in Shiraoi Town, Hokkaido.

We love tea, and we enjoy many kinds of tea, including herbal tea, to suit our mood.

For that reason, we are gradually connecting with tea farmers all over the country, and from five years ago we have been introducing and exporting tea in Japan and overseas, making original blends and holding tea workshops.

As a private trip, Russia also visited the northernmost tea plantation in the world in Sochi to see the difference in tea leaves and the environment.

We usually hold cooking classes and tea workshops in person. I like to brew tea based on its characteristics and the brewing methods that we learn directly from farmers.

We hope this experience will give you a hint of how to brew your favorite tea.

The japanese tea experience is very informative! Keisuke is a great host. We did enjoyed it and had a great time. It’s well structured, professional and gives a good overview about japanese green and black tea. Beginners and even experts will learn something from Keisuke. We strongly recommend it.

Keisuke and Olga ere charismatic hosts and translated the event to Russian as we went, making it accessible to all attending. I learned so many things I had not know about tea preparation and loved the "do along" - it really made it real and memorable. Highly recommend. Thank you!

I had a wonderful time learning about different brewing techniques for Japanese tea! I just made my first cup of koucha after learning about it during Keisuke's lecture, and it was delicious! This experience is great for avid tea drinkers and those just learning as well. Can't wait to take what I've learned and apply it to other Japanese teas as well!

This was such a great experience for me and my daughters. We love Japanese tea but always felt like our brewing technique wasn't the best. Keisuke was very knowledgeable and explained very well how to brew a magical cup of tea!

ティーカップ(中身が白かったらマグカップでも良いかな?)、お茶の色が確認できるコーヒーサーバーがあると便利! 茶器を新たに購入しなくても、自宅にあるもので活用出来ました。 今回はオンラインで受講しましたが、いつか開催場所に集まれるなら再度受講したいくらいです。 (お湯は水筒で用意しました)
