Matcha is a high-quality, finely milled or fine powder green tea used in Japanese tea ceremonies, which comes in many varieties — some of which you can sample at Essencha tea house’s “matcha mystique” class.
Taste all the varieties of matcha they carry and learn the history, culture, preparation and health benefits of the tea, plus how to use it in recipes.
The event includes a tasting, small appetizers and handouts on matcha. Limited space available; reservations required.
4 p.m. $17. Essencha Tea House, 3212a Madison Road, Oakley, 513-533-4832, essencha.com.
