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.

Types Of Ceremonies We Hold

  • Chaji

    The chaji tea ceremony is the most formal ceremony one can attend. It lasts 4 hours in duration but don’t worry because you won’t be spending all that time having tea because it includes strolls through some of the most scenic Japanese gardens, a full course kaiseki meal followed by a serving of delicious Japanese sweets and then ending with tea.

    Chakai

    A chakai is the main informal Japanese tea ceremony. The event does not last long and includes a serving of traditional Japanese sweets and thin matcha tea known as usucha. And although the event is considered to be informal there are still a rigid set of rules that are followed. Any number of guests may join but only three who are known as the shokyaku, jikyaku and teishi will be seated and served a bowl of matcha green tea. The rest of the guests will stand along the walls and be served their bowls only after the shokyaku has been served.

    Akatsuki-no-chaji

    The Akatsuki-no-chaji or dawn tea ceremony is held just before sunrise on cold winter mornings. Having matcha by candlelight just as the first sun rays begin to enter the room is a magical experience.

  • Yobanashi

    The Yobanashi is a winter evening tea ceremony and if you ever get the opportunity to attend one as a guest I would highly recommend it. This ceremony is held to honor the long winter night and involves enjoying tea in a beautiful candle lit chashitsu (tea house). Usually the tea garden outside will also be beautifully decorated and adorned with candles and lanterns which helps create a surreal environment.

    Asa-cha

    The Asa-cha or early summer morning tea ceremony is popular during the summers. Temperatures and humidity in Japan during the summer months can really get intense which makes it harder to culturally prepare or even enjoy a warm cup of matcha. Early mornings are still relatively cool which makes it the ideal time.
