Experience a traditional Japanese tea ceremony led by our Urasenke tea master. Learn about the history and principles of chanoyu (tea ceremony), drink a bowl of matcha (green tea) and taste a seasonal sweet. This tea ceremony is conducted by Taeko Shervin, an Urasenke tea master who has introduced guests at Shofuso to Japanese tea ceremony for over 30 years. She was recently honored by the Urasenke school of chanoyu in Kyoto, Japan for her lifetime devotion to the Way of Tea.Taeko-sensei conducts two seatings  in Shofuso's tea house.

Please be prepared to kneel or sit on the floor for the length of the ceremony. Shoes must be removed before stepping into the house, so please bring socks.
