Green Tea Ceremony

Green Tea Ceremony

Green Tea Ceremony is also known as sado, chado, or chanoyu in Japanese. It is an activity that involves the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha, powdered green tea.

The Green Tea Ceremony is about the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha, powdered green tea. In Japanese it is known as sado, chado, or chanoyu. Tea in Japan can trace its origins dating back to the 9th century. Back then tea was consumed by priests and nobles for medicinal purposes. Uji is where the plant was first grown and birthplace of matcha. As it spread the samurai class started to become interested in the preparation of green tea. Murata Shukou is known as the founder for chanoyu and designed the smaller tea rooms. He is the one to incorporate etiquette and spirit of tea in to the ceremony in the 15th century. Sen no Rikyu was a tea master that made a big impact on wabi-cha. He followed the philosophical teaching of ichi go ichi e, which means that each meeting should be treasured for it can never be reproduced. The principles of harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility are still central to the tea ceremony.

The green tea ceremony is best practiced in rooms with tatami floors, but the venue can be anywhere as long as the traditions are followed. The materials used in the ceremony are chakin (small rectangular white cloth), bowl, caddy, scoop, and whisk. The procedures for the ceremony can vary depending on the school the person learned from. Due to the bitterness of the green tea most of the time there is a sweet dessert to eat after drinking to help with the aftertaste. The ceremony attire is best experienced while wearing a kimono, but it is not required for the guests to wear.
