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.
The tea ceremony experience itself is not only about drinking matcha green tea and eating sweets—there are more important pieces that I will teach you. I will begin by giving an introduction about manners of the guests in the tea ceremony. Then I will give a demonstration by performing the steps. Finally, you will have a chance to make your own tea during a hands-on activity. You’ll receive a certificate when you’ve finished. Let’s learn how to make and drink matcha green tea together.
The session include the following activities :
- Hands-on Experience
Our matcha is Green Rose special brand, so it’s not available at any other shops. We order the matcha green tea directly from a best farmer so that it’s always very fresh and keeps the best quality. Don’t miss this chance to try it.
You can drink matcha twice, and eat sweet twice.
