Greetings from ICC!
How are you doing? Are you getting used to online classes?
If you are feeling bored at home and tired from taking online classes, tea will cheer you up.
If you are looking for ways to make new friends from home, the ICC Online Tea Party has your back!
At the ICC Online Tea Party, ICC student staff members will introduce their country’s tea culture, followed by a quiz and chat session.
We will also give a special teatime package, consisting of authentic high-quality Japanese tea and sweets for the winners of the quiz! Winners can pick up prizes from the ICC office or if you can’t come, we will send it to your home.
Join us, make new friends while staying safe at home, and learn more about different tea cultures around the world!
Let’s enjoy a voyage of discovery and imagination together through tea! See you then!

Hi! This is Hanna and I was born in Taiwan.
I am sure most of you guys know about bubble tea, aka bbt.

There are so many kinds of tea to begin with….
But this time I will introduce you to Alisan Jin Xuan Tea,
also known as “Milk Ooolong” 🙂
Hello everyone! I’m Waka.

Matcha is not only a popular drink.
It’s actually used in a variety of dishes too!
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at this event!
Halo semuanya! My name is Miyuki.
Don’t get fooled by my name that sounds Japanese
because I’m actually Indonesian.
I’ll introduce teh poci from Indonesia
and talk about how Indonesians enjoy tea.
See you at ICC Tea Party!
Hello! This is Qimo from China.
Speaking of Chinese tea, maybe you will think about oolong tea immediately,
but this time, I want to introduce a kind of green tea produced in my hometown, called “Longjing (Dragon well)”
Hi guys! This is Linh from Hanoi, Vietnam.
Do you know that Vietnam is one of the
largest tea exporters in the world?
Come to the party and I will introduce
my favorite tea, which is called Lotus Tea!
Hello! This is Glenn from Scotland.
Surely there isn’t a person who doesn’t know
English Breakfast Tea or the Lipton brand.
Originally, both were created by a Scottish businessman
named Thomas Lipton!
Let’s enjoy Scottish tea together!
