    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.

Our Tea ceremony experience with Hazuki and Yukimi was wonderful. They were both incredibly lovely people and very knowledgeable. They were very welcoming and we both felt very at ease with the whole experience. They answered all our questions and we honestly felt that we had been invited to tea by some friends. Definately an amazing experience held by two amazing people..Highly recommended!

Really enjoyed being invited into your home, and you showing us the Japanese tea ceremony, then we made our own tea and enjoyed some sweets. The whole ceremony was enjoyable and we would have no hesitation in recommending this for any one looking to enjoy a traditional tea ceremony. It was nice getting away from the noise of the city and enjoying a quiet moment too serve and get involved. Thank you very much
