    Puiki dovana


    The tea master knows her field very well, she talks in an engaging way. It was interesting to learn about the types of tea, its history, the method of preparation, and to learn to name the new flavors experienced. Specialness and authenticity are provided by traditional Japanese dishes used for tea preparation.

    We came last Sunday for a teambuilding event, 9 of us pretty much unaware of the art of Japanese tea.
    It was a wonderful time, relaxed, warm, cozy, interesting and entertaining, …but most of all delicious. Everybody enjoyed it very much. I highly recommend to spend such quality time in this beautiful place
    Thank you Giedrė for sharing your beautiful passion, with sparkling eyes.

    Japoniškos arbatos degustacija💯


    Saturday afternoon was cool, but the tasting of Japanese tea not only warmed us from the inside, but also “drenched” our brains with new information and experiences: Giedrė shared her knowledge from life in Japan, taught us how to properly prepare tea, distinguish their smells and aftertastes, and surprised us with tasting surprises at the end! We were all impressed and had a great birthday afternoon in the wonderfully cozy “Yugen Tea” teahouse. Thank you! We will definitely come back not only to drink tea and eat dessert, but also to deepen our knowledge in the next tasting 🙂

    Japoniškos arbatos degustacija

    Mano santykis su arbata buvo labai skeptiškas. “Geriu tik peršalus”. Bet pusantros valandos prabėgo per greitai, viskas buvo super įdomu, skanu, netikėta ir nauja, o išėjus iš degustacijos jau galvojau kada reiks eiti į kitą. Būtinai sugrįšiu ir rekomenduosiu visiems pažįstamiems! Ačiū 🍵
