The British Museum has on exhibition one of the finest examples of Mashiko Teabowls by the famed potter, Shoji Hamada, who also lived in England for many years.  Mr. Hamada, was a Living National Treasure of Japan.

 

       

Kendall College Tea Tasting    

 

On Thursday, October 20, 2011, as part of its mission to introduce the fine food and beverage products of Japan, JETRO, with the Consulate General of Japan, hosted a Japanese Green Tea Showcase for Food Professionals at Kendall College in Chicago. TGT is proud to be associated with JETRO's efforts and was pleased to participate in this event. TGT served the TGT Blend (a blend of Sencha, Kukicha and Matcha) and it was extremely well received by all who attended  

 

 

  

 

 

        

 

       

  


When visiting Hawaii, please visit Neiman Marcus at the Ala Moana Shopping Center and see the TGT Neiman Marcus Gift Set which is also offered at the San Francisco, Beverly Hills and Dallas branches.  In addition, please enjoy freshly-steeped TGT green teas at the finest hotel in Honolulu, the Halekulani, which is a member of the famed Imperial Hotel group of Japan.

 

 

        

 

 

 

 

 

       





  

   

 

 

When visiting Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth and Plano in Texas, please visit Central Market, the finest gourmet food stores in Texas, where TGT's pure green teas are available.  We look forward to working with the Central Market in expanding its fine green tea offerings.

   

 

Demel, in Vienna, known for its fine pastries, chocolates and tea service, features, among its many excellent tea selections, "Morgentau," which is its appellation for Sencha and described as both "aromatic" and having a "fine flavor."   TGT recently visited Demel and other fine restaurants and gourmet stores in Vienna and was pleased to note the popularity of fine green teas of Japan which is a segueway for the popularity of herbal infusions in Germany as green teas also have herbaceous qualities, but  more aromatic, as noted in the Demel Tea Menu.
