2 Year Anniversary with Master Tsai!

Ladies and gentlemen, friends, family, and lovely local community of tea-lovers, we cordially invite you to our second year anniversary celebration! When we opened our doors 2 years ago we were hopeful (cautious, but hopeful) of the fact that we were opening up a small local tea shop in a city ruled by the almighty cafe colada, little did we know we would end up with a bustling and growing community of enthusiastic tea drinkers and newfound tea-lovers. We couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome. In celebration of this beautiful journey, we are hosting a very special night here at Small Tea for you all.
Celebrations begin on Saturday, December 17th

6:30pm-8:00pm: Guided meditataive tea experience (mindfulness and tea) by Master Tsai, appointed Buddist master and founder of Zen Village in Coconut Grove. A gem of this community, for 30 years Master Tsai has been guiding seekers through the varieties, ceremony and mind/body rewards of tea, tea is pleasure, focus , relaxation and, to her, a deeply spiritual journey.

The gift of tea is a welcome to sharing: some time, some tea, some conversation. It’s a humble invitation to indulge whole heartedly and without reservation in the present moment. Amidst the scramble for material goods, the fancy new iGadgets and designer wears, the Black Friday deals and limited time offers, let’s take advantage of the limited time offer of sharing with loved ones. Give the gift of tea.

Matcha, Matcha, Matcha!

How is Matcha Made:
There are certainly many imitations and the quality range is very wide, but the finest matcha comes from the finest Gyokuro, the buttery sweet green tea of Japan. The process to create this tea is intense and involves many steps.
How?
1. In Spring, the tea plants are being shaded reducing the amount of sunlight for up to 3 months to help increase the level and intensity of color and flavor.

2. Usually on the 88th day the Tea leaves are hand picked.
3. They are steamed for about 20s to prevent oxidation and to retain the green color.
4. Then gently air dried by hand-tossing them or in brick ovens to remove the moisture.
5. The Result of this is: Tencha. They store them in wooden boxes and Refrigerate.
6. Then the dry leaves are graded and cleaned. All the stems, twigs and veins are removed. Once they are even in size and color the Tencha is ready to become its final product.
7. The Tencha is Stone Ground into a micro-powder consistency.
8. The Result : Matcha.
Let us know if you have any question or comments.
