What you can expect

Take part in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, a customary practice that dates back to the Azuchi-Momoyama period. This Sado tea ceremony is led by a gracious host in a lovely tea room, where you learn about the practice and get to sip from a delicious cup of matcha green tea.

After meeting and greeting your host at her home in an historic Tokyo neighborhood, head inside and take part in the purification ritual of washing your hands before the tea ceremony begins. Learn about the rules and aesthetic values of this cherished practice that dates back to the 16th century, and then head into the tranquil tea room where the ritual takes place.

Take a seat on the floor and observe the host carefully prepare a delicious cup of matcha green tea, before it's your turn to prepare your own cup. Once you’ve poured the warm drink into your cup, fully savor the serene moment while connecting to the universal spirit of tea, imbibing the beloved beverage of the Japanese people.
