It’s the World Tea Podcast @ the World Tea Expo!
I only have a few more weeks worth of episodes from the World Tea Expo! So what better way to celebrate than to drink some matcha!
For those of you who are unaware, matcha is tea in it’s powdered form. Now not all powdered tea is matcha. Matcha comes from tencha which is tea that has been shaded for four weeks, increasing its chlorophyll; deepening its green colour. It imparts a bitterness to the leaf which of course depending on the cultivar of the tea plant can be more or less sweet. It’s truly a fascinating area of tea and that of today’s discussion!
Again I was consistently serving teas to people walking the floor during the Expo and much to my delight many people wanted to try Tealet’s Yame Shincha. One of those people chanced to be Lauren Danson of Mizuba Tea Co. who had previously been to Obubu Tea Farms in Wazuka, Japan! It was a completely unexpected coincidence and a testament to Obubu’s efforts in bringing together tea lovers.
So please join Lauren and I as we sit down to discuss her company and her latest endeavors into the world of matcha! Get those whisks-a-whiskin’!
LEEET’S BREW IT!
