Japanese tea drinking has been a part of Japanese culture and tradition for hundreds of years. The influence of Japanese tea has not only expanded across the globe, but it also developed into a practice with its own types of aesthetics. Join Katsuko Shellhammer for a presentation on the history and types of tea in Japan. We will also explore modern ways to drink tea and what snacks to pair with your tea time. Finally, follow along at home and learn how to make dorayaki pancakes!

A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants before the event.

Katsuko Shellhammer is the Education Outreach Coordinator at the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania. She holds a license to practice tea from the Urasenke school and is continuing her studies with local teacher Yuko Eguchi.

This series is supported by the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia University of Pittsburgh Coordinating site.
