Randy was amazing. He's exceptionally well connected and has so much background. He's a very important person in Japan I'm the world of tea and I felt lucky to habe a tour by him.
I wanted to let you know that I finally heard back from the clients. They loved EVERYTHING. Particular shoutout to Randy. Thank you for making this perfect for them.
Directions to shop in instructions--no street address in english, and tea shop is not really well marked. Confusion about whether tasting fee paid or not, so we paid again. Tasting fee seemed excessive for what we got($53.81 for 2--2 cups of tea and 2 pastries total!, and tea could reasonably be expected to part of the ceremony). Some basic questions about tea(how much caffeine in green vs. black, importance of terroir to how tea tasted) seemed to stump Randy, which was odd for someone with his tea education.
