[Ended][Virtual Workshop] Make Matcha Drinks at Home with @O5tea

July 8th, 2020


Explore matcha with us following Pedro’s (@o5tea) tea journey and learning how to make iced matcha drinks for cooling down the summer heat! Matcha is a Japanese shade-grown, micro-milled tea. For those who are unfamiliar with it, Pedro will demonstrate how to make three very simple yet delicious drinks to make at home. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to create some vibrant, energizing drinks for yourself or guests.


You’ll learn how to:

  • Whisk a bowl of matcha (usucha) at home
  • Create an iced matcha soda/tonic
  • Pour a matcha americano


Attendees are suggested to have the following materials at hand during the workshop: a matcha bowl, a chasen, a chashaku, their favourite matcha, a thermos or shaker, and a bottle of sparkling, mineral water, or a bottle of tonic water.
