Spring Matcha Class
Yoshitsugu Nagano x CIBONE Brooklyn

We are excited to announce a introductory matcha class led by Yoshitsugu Nagano, during the blossoming season of spring.

In recent times, matcha has become a globally recognized and healthy beverage, not only in Japan but around the world. Matcha, a powdered green tea, is an easily accessible drink, yet it originally served as a special beverage prepared through the tea ceremony by Zen monks and samurai. With a history spanning over 1000 years, matcha has been a drink of special significance, closely connected to the profound spirituality of Zen.

In this class, you will have the opportunity to learn the traditional method of preparing and enjoying matcha, infused with the spiritual essence of Zen, suitable for beginners to practice at home. Additionally, you can appreciate and actually use tea bowls from CIBONE's collection, immersing yourself in the world of tea bowls as works of art. After the class, you can take home a tea whisk selected by Yoshitugu Nagano.

Let's make a point to incorporate the matcha ceremony into our daily lives and seize moments of tranquil everyday experiences!
