    Tea Ceremony

    The Japanese tea ceremony is a centuries-old tradition closely tied to Zen Buddhist principles, and a popular way to experience Japanese culture. There are several variations on this ritual. At its base, powdered green tea (matcha) is prepared and served in accordance with strict rules. Oftentimes, wagashi (Japanese sweets) is served alongside the bitter green tea.

Cooking Class Information

Warm the bowl and chasen with hot water from a pot, and wipe lightly.

Before boiling the water, lightly powder the powdered green tea into a teaspoon.

Transfer the boiling water to another bowl (any ceramic) and lower the temperature a little.

Add a small amount of hot water to a matcha tea bowl and stir with a chasen so that it does not become lump. Once the powder has melted, add the remaining hot water.

Hold the tea bowl with your left hand, hold a chasen in your right hand, use your wrist to make it vertical, and make a quick and crisp sound to make bubbles.

At first there are many large bubbles, but after a while they will change to fine bubbles. Make the bubbles as fine as possible.

Finally, collect bubbles in the center to draw a circle in the center. It's a delicious sign that you can do things.

Let's serve it with tea and meals when finished! !
