If you don't know by now, I love tea. I love the variety of tastes and types; I prefer tea in its purest form. After visiting Ippodo Tea House (here) I immediately signed up for one of their tea classes. It wasn't any ordinary tea class but one for Shincha, a rare tea that is harvested only once a year. It was an amazing experience to learn more about tea, brew my own and connect with others over our love of all things tea.
