Join a VIRTUAL TEATIME with a Japanese Tea Enthusiast
PLEASE NOTE: This video was filmed after the second state of emergency ended in Tokyo.
Shizuka meets Phoebe Amoroso, a journalist and foodie in Tokyo, for a special surprise: a pairing of Japanese tea and sweets at Senchado in Ginza. Phoebe’s friend Akira-san is also in for a surprise, because he has no idea which sweets Phoebe has selected for him, and must choose three teas for three perfect pairings.
