Kimicha Tea

Finding the perfect tea requires a sensitive palate. Kimicha's founder Kimiko Uriu has been working endlessly to do that; she selects each one of the shop's many offerings from the hundreds of different teas available in regions like China, India, and Japan. Her skill shows; she's a certified tea specialist and her selections have won awards from the North American Tea Championship.

She's not shy about passing those skills along, though. The shop hosts events that include tastings of new teas and classes that teach students to blend their own teas, pair foods and tea, or try teas from every region of the world. The shop stocks everything newly discovered aficionados might need as well, from ornate serving sets to sleek matcha bowls.

Customer Reviews

It was great and I hope they come back next year or sooner!

It's the Festival's first year and I hope they bring it back next year. I enjoyed the tea ceremony presentations and tasting different types of tea, and meeting some local tea suppliers. I also met some lovely tea aficionados from around the world -- India, Sri Lanka, Korea and Kenya. It was a fun afternoon.

I really enjoyed my experience and loved tasting the variety of teas that I didn`t know existed. The power point presentations were very informative and and the Japanese tea demonstation was nice to see.
