Go Green with Matcha Tea


Join chef, writer, and tea connoisseur Eric Gower, author of The Breakaway Cook, for a talk and demonstration about matcha tea from its ancient cultivation to the development of the Japanese tea ceremony to matcha’s contemporary comeback as a coffee alternative noted for its refined taste and legendary health benefits. An artisanal coldbrew matcha tasting and dessert pairing will be offered to each guest.
