What better way to celebrate the launch of PANATEA than with an underground tea party!
Last night's event was held at MaisonO, a new downtown lounge meets trippy Japanese den. The event officially introduced New Yorker's to PANATEA and welcomed new faces to our matcha movement.
VIP guests included Leandra Medine of Man Repeller, Leigh Lezark and Geordon Nicol of The Misshapes, Harley Viera Newton, Becka Diamond and Ross One. The Misshapes crushed it in the DJ booth with an eclectic curated blend of new wave and electropop (not to mention also crushing it in the photo booth!).
We featured a specialty cocktail combining a delightfully refreshing blend of PANATEA's matcha and Ty Ku's sake (recipe to follow). Our expert tea master, Souheki Mori, prepared traditional matcha bowls for guests and led matcha education for those interested in learning more.
We were thrilled with the turnout and incredibly positive feedback about our product! We so appreciate all of you who braved the 15 degree weather to come support us and look forward to hosting many more underground tea parties in our future.
WHAT. A. NIGHT!!!!
