Experts from Ippodo, one of Kyoto’s oldest and respected tea houses, come to Soho’s So Restaurant for 3 days (11-13 Oct) to hold a series of serious tea classes. Taught in either English or Japanese (some classes are bilingual), there are time slots in the morning, afternoon and evening to learn about the art of tea preparation and to sample Ippodo’s finest. The beginner’s class and dedicated matcha (powdered green tea) session cost £18 per person, while the £30 per head Ippodo Tea Time is ideal for those who want to expand their tea knowledge. Book now.
