Learn about the history and traditions of the chanoyu (tea ceremony), drink a bowl of matcha (green tea) and taste some seasonal sweets. Shoes must be removed before stepping into the house, so please be prepared to bring socks and kneel or sit on the floor for the length of the ceremony.

The Tea ceremony is conducted by Taeko Shervin, an Urasenke tea master who has welcomed guests at Shofuso to Japanese tea ceremony for over 30 years. She was recently honored for her lifetime devotion to the Way of Tea by the Urasenke school of chanoyu in Kyoto, Japan.
