There is a green tea cafe called Jugetsudo located on the 5th floor in the Kabuki Theatre in East Ginza. Periodically they hold green tea classes. I have attended the sencha making class and I enjoyed the taste of fresh green tea using spring, picked tea leaves.
All set for the students.
I tried two different kinds of sring picked tea leaves.
Make sure you warm your cup with hot water beforehand.
This is the proper way of holding the tea pot when you pour your tea into the cup.
You shake the teacup with your hand like this, so that the wet tea leaves shift evenly inside of the teapot after you pour your tea.
It is important to leave the lid on like this to let the air go out.
This is the professional way of holding your tea leave container in your hand.
As a souvenir, I bought a tea pot and tea cup for home:)
