Welcome to Nari Japan Fest 2023!
Nari Tea and the Fukuroi City Government have collaborated on bringing Tea Makers and Artisans from Shizuoka and Tokyo to Helsinki for a series of in-person workshops and experiences. We are honored to have our tea farmer Mr. Morishita from Fukuroi, Shizuoka and our long-time tea producer friend Uyo Okabe bring their experience, knowledge, and love for Japanese tea culture to the Nari Tea Lab.
Throughout the Festival, Morishita-San and Okabe-san will be hosting curated Fukuroi Roasted Tea tastings, personal tea blending workshops, tea ceremonies, and culminating in the Roasted Tea Latte Art Competition sponsored by the Fukuroi Roasted Tea Co with exclusive prizes from Hario J.P and TOKINE.
Alongside the tea related events, Tokyo-based Wagashi (Traditional Japanese Confections) maker, instructor, and author Yukako Yasuda and Shizuoka-based Head Chef of EatTable Mayuko Sasuga will bring their creative specialties into the week of festivity, offering Wagashi Making workshop and Afternoon Tea & Food Pairing experiences.
