What is a Japanese Tea Ceremony?

Chadō is a cultural tradition of Japan that was developed in the 15th and 16th centuries in close conjunction with Zen. The basic principles of Chadō are expressed in these words:"Harmony can be created between persons, between objects, between a person and an object ... among all matter of the world. We should respect everyone and everything without distinction of status or rank. Spiritual purity is essential and we can embody tranquility only when we make harmony, respect and purity our own".

​What do I expect at the ceremony?

At a Temple KUKURI tea ceremony, we serve organic green tea/Matcha (caffeine-free mulberry leaf tea is also an available option) to each guest along with Japanese traditional confection on a piece of paper called Kaishi. Your role as a guest is simply to be willing to be fully present and open to the possibilities of this particular gathering of people, this particular time and space. As we say,"Treasure each encounter as a once-in-a-lifetime event". "一期一会” in the principle of Chado. We will guide you on how to receive the confection and tea. No prior experience is necessary.

We usually serve two groups in different times. Each group usually takes about 40 minutes to receive tea and to have a short quiet time/meditation time at the end. Each group can have a maximum of 12 people. first come, first served, so we highly recommend signing up for a ceremony beforehand by contacting us (please specify the time you would like to come) or online registration.

If you would like to experience the richest, finest, smoothest tasting, organic, aromatic green tea - Matcha - come and join us at Temple KUKURI. It will change your tea experience forever!
