Back in August, I attended my very first blogger event in the past year!
Yes, it's been a long time since I last attended a blogger event ever since I headed to Japan for 3 months mid last year.
And cos I'm hardly in Singapore over the weekends, it makes it even more difficult for me to attend blogger events as they are mostly held over the weekends.
Anyways, yea! Back to attending events feels good!
Wore my yukata to the event not because Himeko and I knew that it's all Japanese themed, but because we were heading to 夏祭り (Summer Festival) after the event that evening.
And yea! Super happy to finally own a WC Kumatan Yukata!!!
Always wanted one ever since it was released years ago but I didn't manage to get one.
So when I saw it at the store on sales months back, I bought it without a second thought!
And yea! Himeko was also in Yukata!
If you find the Yukata Himeko's wearing familiar, it's because it's mine and I wore it to 夏祭り for 2 years!
Once in Japan next year and once in Singapore the year before!
Anyways, back to the event proper!
It was a tea tasting session and like mentioned, it was a Japanese themed event.
Cos we are having awesome tea from Japan!!!
And first up was the Ginger Tea of Shimodozono!
I understand that many people are afraid or dislike the taste of Ginger but trust me, Japan really knows how to make Ginger yummy!
I have always disliked ginger since year but ever since staying in Japan for that 3 months last year, I realised that Japanese ginger products really don't taste that bad!
And some actually taste pretty good!
And for the tea of Shimodozono, they contain Mix Herbal Extracts which helps to balance your body hormone naturally, helps in detox & cleansing, revitalize & vitalize, support body functions and lastly have a relaxing & calming effect!
This Ginger Tea of theirs used Organic Ginger in the making which is a powerful antioxidant. Plus! It also helps to improve stomach functions, improve metabolism, and help in reducing inflammation & infection!
Just imagine how healthy it is!
This Ginger Tea does not have a very strong ginger taste which many people are afraid of.
Plus! It's of black tea base so if you're a fan of black tea, do try this out!
They paired their Ginger Tea with this special yummy brownie!
It's not very sweet and the taste of the tea and cake compliments each other really well!
Next! Mixed Herb & Roasted Tea!
Roasted tea... you may be thinking "Huh? What tea is that?"
Perhaps you'll be more familiar with ほじ茶 (hojicha) instead?
Paired with this Japanese fluffy pancakes with Azuki Beans & Apples!
The sauce was like cheesy base which surprisingly goes really well with their Mixed Herb & Roasted Tea!
And lastly! Rose Oolong Tea!
A fan of Rose Tea? A fan of Oolong Tea?
You're gonna love this!
A nice cup of good Oolong Tea with the fragrance of Rose, what more can I ask for?!
(Yes, I am a fan of Rose tea AND Oolong Tea!)
This is just the best of both worlds!
And of course! Awesome tea paired with awesome dessert!
This sesame based dessert was just super smooth and super yummy!
And with sips of the fragrant Rose Oolong Tea, it was just heaven!
A huge huge thanks to Tealy and Blackbox for the invitation to such an awesome event that day!
