The Japanese tea ceremony, also known as the “Way of Tea” or Sado, dates back more than 1000 years.
Finely ground green tea (matcha) is prepared by the host for his or her guests, and served with an eye to aesthetics, a distinct delicacy, and a highly codified, specific set of movements, allowing guests to enjoy the entire experience of tea in a structured yet relaxing atmosphere.
The tea ceremony values the encounter between host and guest as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a deeper emotional exchange through the act of serving and drinking the tea.
Beyond that, it is also a comprehensive art that combines carefully crafted spaces such as a tea room or garden with consideration for other details, including the selection of tea bowls, utensils and other crafts, food such as traditional confections or more formal cuisine (the kaiseki meal), and a sensitivity to the seasons as expressed in the choice of flowers, foods and works of art.
