What is Japanese tea ceremony?
Traditionally, tea ceremony took place in a narrow room where the host and guests sit fairly slow to each other.
The tea ceremony is known as chanoyu, or sado, in Japanese, and the art and performance of preparing and presenting matcha powdered green tea is called otemae.
The tea ceremony sees the simple task of preparing a drink for a guest elevated to an art form, an intricate series of movements performed in strict order—and appreciated by the recipient.
It is widely accepted that becoming proficient in the art will take many years.
