You probably know that Tokyo will make the second attempt to hold the Olympic Games 2020 this summer. Inspired by the athletic spirit of the Olympic Games, we are happy to say that during the same period we will hold the Japanese Tea Marathon!
‘What is the Japanese Tea Marathon?’ you may ask. The marathon is symbolic, but it does ask for stamina and dedication. It will be held online during the Olympic period (23rd July – 8th August) and over 15 days will introduce 15 tea regions of Japan. What a rare opportunity to explore Japanese tea form south to north, from east to west!
The series of online events will provide a closer look at each of the 15 tea regions and will give a chance to meet the tea people working there. Participation is completely free and up to 200 participants will also be able to receive a set of 30 teas (2 from each region).
The registration is already open. Japanese tea is waiting for you!
