This is our second year hosting Obubu in Oxford for this very popular workshop. Places are limited so early booking is essential. No tea knowledge required. All welcome.
Our venue - St Peter's College, Oxford
The beautiful and historic St.Peter's College is in the centre of Oxford. Established in 1929 on the site of two of Oxford's oldest medieval hostels it is the perfect location to share tea and hospitality. The college is within minutes walk of both the railway and bus stations.
Your hosts - Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms
Founded by two friends - Akky and Matsu (pictured here) Obubu has sparked a revolution which has breathed life into agriculture and tea farming in Wazuka Prefecture near Kyoto. Tea farming in Wazuka was an industry in decline before Obubu arrived and restarted tea cultivation in an area surrounded by abandoned tea fields.
Today, with the help of Simona (their super-intern who fell in love with Obubu and never left) Obubu are gaining recognition for their delicious teas across the globe - especially for their Sencha and Matcha - which are some of the best in Japan.
