As this workshop has a limited capacity, register early to avoid disappointment! Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early at the Esplanade Theatre Studio entrance (Level 4) at least 20mins before start, or your spot might be released to other patrons on the waiting list.

The home of Mt Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture is situated near the centre of Japan, and is blessed with mild climate and good quality water ideal for the cultivation of Japanese green tea.

Accounting for about 40% of Japan’s overall tea production, Shizuoka goes beyond its capacity as a producer to make every effort in sharing the pleasures and benefits of tea with the world, through a variety of facilities and events.

In this collaboration with Esplanade, a Japanese tea instructor from the prefecture conducts a workshop on how to brew and appreciate different types of green tea, from shincha (first harvest tea) to gyokuro (the most prized form of green leaf tea). Participants will also learn about green tea and its health benefits.
