At the Toronto Tea Festival, DAVIDsTEA had a booth showcasing their traditional teas, as well as a talk. Since DAVIDsTEA is a large reason I started my tea journey, I wanted to talk about them!
At the start of my tea journey, many years ago, both Lu Ann (The Cup of Life) and Tegan (Amoda Tea) were instrumental to my tea growth. So, when Lu Ann became the curator for the Amoda Tea monthly boxes, I was happy, proud, and curious to see what Lu Ann had come up with!
Kyobancha is a green tea that is unique to the Kyoto region. I was fortunate enough able to experience this tea from farm to cup, and I wanted to share it!
For the last two weeks, I have talked about matcha tea ceremonies, matcha tea utensils, and now it is finally time to talk about matcha itself! In this post I want to break down how the tea is made.

Last week, I started TEA 101, and the goal of the series is to share what I am learning about tea with you! In the first post, I broke down different common green teas in Japan. Now, I want to go into more detail about each one. This week will be about shaded teas!
Since I am living at Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms in Japan, it seemed most fitting to start a series focused on tea: TEA 101! The first post I wanted to write was a guide to common Japanese green teas.
