The Japanese tea ceremony, also called the Way of Tea, is a Japanese cultural activity involving the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha, powdered green tea. In Japanese, it is called chanoyu or sadō. The manner in which it is performed, or the art of its performance, is called otemae. Zen Buddhism was a primary influence in the development of the Japanese tea ceremony.
The Japanese tea ceremony has a big role in Japanese culture and is considered as a special event. When I experienced it, I felt that the tea ceremony has an effect to calm one’s mind. You could experience the Japanese tea ceremony in Tokyo. Please experience the tea ceremony, when you come to Japan.
