Students introduce themselves before a green tea seminar Nov. 22 on Camp Foster, Okinawa, Japan. The tea seminar brought Status of Forces Agreement members together to learn about Japanese culture by teaching them proper preparation, health benefits and cultural background of Japanese green tea, also called ryokucha. The seminar featured a certified tea specialist who detailed the uses and health benefits of green tea. After the presentation, students followed the specialist’s instructions and prepared their own tea.
