Overview
Experience a Japanese Tea Ceremony, the Urasanke way, one of the main schools of Japanese tea ceremony.
What to Expect
Tea plants were introduced in Japan from China during the 8th century, by Japanese Buddhist monks. It’s in the Uji district around Kyoto that the first tea-plant growing in Japan began. Uji is still renowned for producing top-quality matcha today. The monks perfected the art of stone-grinding tea leaves into a fine powder, making the first true matcha. They also developed the tea ceremony, which was a spiritual practice of mindfulness and meditation.

Your host and expert will greet you dressed in a traditional Japanese kimono, and you will be served and learn how to serve green tea and seasonal Japanese confections the Urasanke way, one of the main schools of Japanese tea ceremony. You will also learn the principles of chado — (和 wa) harmony, (敬 kei) respect, (清 sei) purity and (寂 jyaku) tranquility.

This experience will be a  sip of tradition, and a reminder to be more mindful and focused through life.
