Tea Ceremony - Thick Tea

Shofuso Japanese House and Garden

Where:
Shofuso Japanese House and Garden Horticultural Drive and Lansdowne Drive Philadelphia PA 19131-3712
When:
  • Saturday October 13th 2012

Experience a Japanese formal koicha (thick tea) ceremony conducted by guest tea school Omotesenke Eastern Region Chapter (Domonkai). Drink a bowl of matcha (green tea) and taste a seasonal sweet.

Only 6 people may attend. Space is limited and reservations are required.

Tea ceremony—called chanoyu or chado in Japanese— is at once an art form, a spiritual discipline, a way to socialize, and a window on Japanese culture. Practiced for more than 450 years, this unique way of sharing tea has spread around the world. People far and wide have discovered that life is beautified by this way—by the spirit that guides its practice, as well as by the objects which express that spirit and are an integral part of its practice.
