It’s All About the Tea
Sushi and Robata’s very own executive chef Masa Tanaka has teamed up with Jennifer Wood, founder of Canton Tea for a spectacular tea tasting event. Jennifer Wood was always a passionate tea drinker, but it was when she realized that she had unwittingly been drinking tea more valuable than gold that she started Canton Tea Co. She travels the world to tea farms and forges partnerships with small, family run farms to make handmade teas. Masa has created 7 extraordinary dishes incorporating tea as the key ingredient and Jennifer has matched each with a unique Canton Tea.
