WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
With a history reaching back to the 16th century, tea ceremony is a profound practice deeply associated with all that makes Japan special: its unique sense of beauty; its tremendous sense of hospitality; its undoubtable zen nature.
This program has been specially made to recreate the traditional tea ceremony atmosphere, and all guests follow the authentic practices of our tea master's tea ceremony school. As part of this, the tea master will prepare for you delicious matcha tea and traditional sweets to enjoy. During the session, they will explain to you the many customs and meanings behind the ceremony, and you will have the opportunity to try making tea using the traditional processes yourself.
