Lovely time

Review England, United KingdomNovember 26, 2019Couple   I had a lovely time at this tea ceremony! It was very well thought out and executed. As I was the only one there, it felt intimate – like a private lesson, which was a bonus. I would recommend this experience. The guest booked the tea ceremony experience below Chado experience There is much more to the tea ceremony than just drinking tea. It’s called WA-KEI-SEI-JAKU. WA means peace and harmony, KEI means respect, SEI means purity, JAKU means tranquility.

World of tea ceremonies

Review Ljubljana, Ljubljana, SloveniaNovember 3, 2019Couple   You really do enter the world of tea ceremonies in a genuine and non-flashy way. We got lucky and we were the only ones at the session, so it was like a private session. It takes place in a nice cozy off the main path kind of home. You actively participate and learn Japanese words and phrases related to the stages of the ceremony. You learn to appreciate this unique moment in time and each movement by the host is something significant and calming. We felt such a connection with the experience that we now practice our own tea ceremonies at home (in our amateurish way) to re-align our focus and find appreciation. You will get a lot out of this experience, highly recommended. The guest booked the tea ceremony experience below Chado experience There is much more to the tea ceremony than just drinking tea.
