A little bit about Tea Ceremonies!

The Japanese tea ceremony is also known as ‘The Way of Tea”, it is a cultural tea ceremony involving the ceremonial preparation of matcha, which is a powdered green tea. In Japanese it is called chanoyo or chado or sado. Zen Buddhism was an influence in the development of the tea ceremony. Tea gatherings usually includes thin tea and a light meal.

What the Tea Ceremony is all About!

Preparing tea in this ceremony means pouring all attention into the perfect movements needed. This process is not actually about drinking tea it is about the movement and preparing the tea from one’s heart. The host of the tea ceremony is always considering the quests with every movement and gesture.

Even the placement of the

utensils need to be

placed correctly.

How to do a Tea Ceremony!

The tea ceremony normally took place in a tearoom, the chachitsu. The guests entered with the samurai leaving their swords outside and the last to enter closing the door behind him. The tearoom was arranged so that those entering would first see a scroll hanging in the tokonoma {alcove}. This scroll was normally of calligraphy, with its subject often a saying such as Honrai mu Ichibutsu {'Originally there is nothing'}. this scroll is carefully chosen by the host to reflect a mood or the season, the guests spend a moment appreciating it before taking a seat hearth in the centre of the room.

The host now enters, and one of the guests thanks him or her for their invitation. it was considered impolite to speak of things not related to the ceremony. The guest then serves a light meal. The guests then exit the tearoom while the host prepares for the drinking of tea, replacing the scroll with a single flower in a vase. When the guests return, the host heats water in an iron kettle, then rinses and wipes the tea bowl and utensils. He places powdered green tea in a bowl, then whips the tea with a whisk, until the surface is slightly frothy, then serves it to his guests.

Two kinds of tea will be served: koicha, which is the more formal of the two and possessed of

a thicker consistency and bitter taste, and usucha - thinner and more 'informal'.

Koicha is served first, and all the guests drink a small quantity

from the same bowl.

Later in the ceremony, usucha is served in individual bowls.

The tea bowls themselves can vary in design according to the

host and the season.

'Winter' tea bowls are deeper, to help contain heat, while

'summer' bowls are shallower and broader to release

the heat and give the impression of coolness.
