World tea expo at Las Vegas Convention Center

Jugetsudo was at World Tea Expo!

We had fun at the World Tea Expo 2018 in Las Vegas last week. Outside was over 100F, but inside of the convention center was nice and cool—-perfect to sample hot green tea!
We met a lot of tea lovers and Ricardo Caicedo was among them. Ricardo is a tea blogger and in fact he wrote about Jugetsudo in his blog, My Japanese Green Tea.

Ricardo was born in Columbia and he prefers tea, especially green tea, over coffee. He is the first Colombian to obtain the certification of Japanese Tea Advisor by the Nihoncha (Japanese Tea) Instructor Association!
His mission is to spread the word about Japanese tea culture.
Thank you Ricardo!

anko crumpet

Anko Crumpets

Today’s oyatsu (snack) is an anko crumpet!
A crumpet is a small griddle cake originated in England. The outside is crispy and crunchy and the inside is soft and chewy. The flat top has pores–perfect for butter to permeate.
Scrumptious Crumpet in southeast Portland makes great crumpets!
We put butter (lots of), anko (redbean paste), whipped cream and sprinkled some matcha on top.
It was very, very good.
