You are invited to explore the historical origins and modern expressions of the 400-year-old tradition of Japanese tea ceremony.

Aspects of the procedure, its underlying ideologies, and spirit of modern innovation will be introduced by a longtime student of chanoyu. Participants will also learn about matcha, the powdered green tea used in traditional tea ceremony, and how they may enjoy it at home.
