Learn How to Choose & How to Use Green Tea Powder

Fundraiser Event for Local Arts & Culture

Beautiful piano music + pure tea paired with good food + Japanese Tea Ceremony = our fundraiser event held for local arts and cultural center. Seth Kinzie, a talented pianist, fully donated his time to this unique event. His music magically filled the space with serene calmness. We were totally blessed with his live performance during the entire time. We enjoyed the clear sound of his piano, 9 different iced green teas, each paired with food, and multiple tea ceremonies for two hours.

Tea Ceremony, Kimono Display, Live Piano Music, & Food

The event was well attended and successful, despite the fact it was the first Sunday with gorgeous weather in our area. We appreciate all the people who took the trouble to participate in this new experiment and who donated generously to the Josephy Center. 18 gallons of 9 different iced teas along with various foods, savory and sweet, were offered. Several Kimonos and Obis were also displayed, adding Japanese aesthetics to the space.

SEI MEE TEA: A Pioneer of Green Tea Powder

SEI MEE TEA is one of the pioneers who brought green tea powder to the American market–touting its benefits. 14 years have passed, and it seems everybody has jumped on the bandwagon of the “matcha boom.” Matcha is only a small part of what our green tea world offers. We appreciate our friends who are curious and truly interested in learning about different cultures.

Tasteful Experience of Japanese Culture

Green Tea is an important part of Japanese culture, and the Tea Ceremony is surely something we should keep as a cultural heritage. Through the Tea Ceremony, we extol these virtues: – Admiration for the beauty of simplicity, – Appreciation of the uniqueness of the exact moment, and – Respect toward everything surrounding you including the people sitting next to you and the tea bowl in your palm. We appreciated the opportunity to share this beautiful ceremony! As a proud maker and supplier of quality green tea and matcha products, we would like to lead American green tea culture to the next level. We encourage American folks to learn how good “real” green teas can be, not only for our physical and mental health but also for their pleasing taste. That’s right–we would like to offer Green Teas to enjoy the true flavor of green tea itself, not covered by sweetener or spices. And we would like you to do it in an enjoyable way–paired with foods.

Tradition in New Ways

We love food. Food is fun. Flavors are like color paints squeezed out on a color palette and you can mix any of them to create a new experience. We would like you to play with them and have fun with the discoveries. We heard that the favorite pairing at the event was iced “Kukicha Lavender” tea and cheesecake. The same tea tastes totally different when it’s made cold or hot, or when it’s paired with different foods. Try a warm cup of “Hojicha Red Rose” tea with “Lemon Cake with Raspberry Frosting” for an experience of decadent afternoon tea time. You might enjoy a cold cup of the same rose tea with an elegant candle dinner. Let yourself be fascinated and delighted with your discoveries–remembering that antioxidants coming from quality organic green teas are working even more powerfully as you enjoy.
