Let’s experience the tea ceremony
Chado ~the Japanese tea ceremony~
Chado, the Way of Tea, is widely recognized internationally as a pursuit that integrates many aspects of Japanese culture. The Way of Tea has a history of more than 500 years.
The tea we present is of the Urasenke tradition of Tea.
In Chado the significant idea is respect for others and hospitality.
You will have an opportunity to learn Japanese culture and the philosophy of Zen through the experience of Chado lesson.
The act of making tea is called Temae. Chado is primarily an act of sharing between the host and guests. In Chado, the host prepares the tea room with great care, arranging the utensils, flowers and so on. You can feel the relaxing atmosphere.
Before drinking Matcha, the confections are served to the guests. The host selects the seasonal one for the guest. It makes the taste of Matcha more wonderful and bring out a better flavor of green tea.
Matcha is powdered green tea blending with hot water. The host serves a bowl of tea, Matcha, with all his/her heart so as to give the guests a feeling of peace and fulfillment. Enjoy the tea!
We offer the Chado experience lesson as shown on the up.
You can enjoy a bowl of green tea while watching the ‘Temae’.
