Nice to meet you. Our names are Keisuke & Olga and we live in Shiraoi Town, Hokkaido.

We love tea, and we enjoy many kinds of tea, including herbal tea, to suit our mood.

For that reason, we are gradually connecting with tea farmers all over the country, and from five years ago we have been introducing and exporting tea in Japan and overseas, making original blends and holding tea workshops.

As a private trip, Russia also visited the northernmost tea plantation in the world in Sochi to see the difference in tea leaves and the environment.

We usually hold cooking classes and tea workshops in person. I like to brew tea based on its characteristics and the brewing methods that we learn directly from farmers.

We hope this experience will give you a hint of how to brew your favorite tea.

Had a really great time learning so much about Japanese tea! Keisuke took the time to see what equipment and tea we had at our end then taught us techniques to get the most out of it. He was an excellent host and would definitely recommend!

Really lovely experience. Keisuke was so friendly and thorough, and we learned so much about tea. Loved the brewing demo and can't wait to try out these techniques at home to discover our top preferences.

I loved this experience. Keisuke made it really personal, and really took the time to figure out how to work with the equipment and teas we had at home, and helped make really informed choices. I was touched by how invested he was in our experience. I learned a lot about tea making and also cooking with tea. I'm so excited to apply what I've learned. AND, I really feel connected and would like to go visit when I can finally travel again!

We set this up as a private birthday party, with participants from all over the world. Keisuke & Olga were very patient and accommodating throughout. They are wonderful people! The set-up and organization were well thought out and organized. Our group was big, about 15 people, and I think for such an intimate experience, maybe 5-6 is ideal; perhaps some technical glitches like echoing could be controlled by mass-muting by the host? But this was my own oversight in inviting so many people : / Anyway, we learned a lot of new things about tea, like cold brewing, matcha differences, aroma vs flavor. We could have gone on for hours and still not exhaust all the tea topics! Keisuke knows his topic cold : ) Finally, we now want to go to Hokkaido IRL. Thank you, Keisuke & Olga!

The host is very friendly and a specialist in the knowledge of tea. He knows the different types of tea available in Japan, how they can be made to different tastes, and the effect that each kind of tea has on the mind and body. Through the experience, I’ve become more interested in tea. And I’ve got to know how to brew a delicious tea and enjoy it daily. I really feel grateful for this!
