Event description

Description

Experience one of Japan's oldest traditional tea ceremonies in a secret indoor Japanese garden hidden in the Upper East Side.

Join New York Adventure Club for a traditional Japanese tea ceremony demonstration in the style of Urasenke, one of the main schools of Japanese tea ceremony, at the Urasenke Chanoyu Center (UCC). Established in 1967 to promote the rich cultural tea tradition of Urasenke in New York City, the UCC is a private organization that teaches its members how to master this ancient tradition over the course of 10-15 years.

Led by a Tea Master of Urasenke, our unique experience at the Urasenke Chanoyu Center will include:

  • A brief overview of the Urasenke Chanoyu Center, from its days as an 1880s carriage house to studio of famed artist Mark Rothko
  • Access inside the secret Japanese garden and its four traditional tea rooms, all of which were constructed by traditional carpenters from Kyoto, Japan using imported Japanese materials
  • An authentic Urasenke tea ceremony demonstration to learn about its history and philosophy, etiquette, and traditions
  • An opportunity to consume the best quality sweets and matcha green tea from Kyoto, Japan, where Urasenke originated

See you there!

**Rules: Jeans are not allowed, socks required, remove all hand jewelry, refrain from wearing strong perfume or cosmetics
