29 October 2019 - Japan Room Lecture: Nazani Tea Time from Ancient Greece to Mugicha

  • 1 min read

For all tea lovers, Nazani Tea will host an evening bridging the tea and infusion traditions of the East and West. Though Nazani Tea has a wide award-winning range of infusions, the evening will focus on Kykeon (both modern and traditional recipes), an ancient Greek blend commonly drunk 2,500 years ago, resurrected and sold for the first time in modern history, as well as Nazani Tea’s roasted spring barley, also originally from ancient Greece but now as well-known as mugicha in Japan. The health benefits and the importance of herbal infusions and flowers will also be covered. Nazani Tea will gift tea samples for the enjoyment of all attendees to take away with them as we move to present the publication of the host’s first book of a series of ten books planned, The Sphinxing Rabbit: Her Sovereign Majesty.

 

Book Presentation: The Sphinxing Rabbit by Pauline Chakmakjian, MA

Please let us know if you would like to take an optional tour of the Freemasons’ Hall at 5.15 for 5.30pm.

Host: Pauline Chakmakjian, Visit Kyoto Ambassador.
