Macchapprentice Certification 05 12 2015
Approx 2 hours – $120
JagaSilk Macchapprentices are starting their path in our program and that being said, we hope to give them a starting point based not only on technique, but on knowledge as well. Focus will not be on traditional methods, but on the JagaSilk “Way of Tea”, a method that transposes the act of maccha creation into a more casual environment, while retaining the integrity of the tea. Certified macchapprentices are taught by a macchadept or above, and take part in a session that covers:
– Maccha: topics include what maccha is, its health benefits, history, source, labour conditions, cultural significance, how to take care of it, and repercussions if you don’t.
– Maccha tools: topics include what maccha tools are, their purpose, their history, how to look after them, and repercussions if you don’t.
– Tasting: explores the difference between different grades of maccha.
– Preparation: Focuses on the preparation method of a complete maccha menu
** May also include a basic introduction to artisan milk steaming
