What to expect
  • 1. Wear kimono and go to Open Samurai Residence The entrance of the tea room is called Nijiriguchi or crawl-in entrance, created by the most famous master of tea ceremony, Sen no Rikyu. Nijiriguchi is so small that even a person of high rank should lower his head to pass through the Nijiriguchi. It reflects the idea of Sen no Rikyu that all men are equal in the tea room. 2. About the manners of tea ceremony Each manner of tea ceremony has meaning and the instructor will explain one by one easily. You enjoyed Matcha with Japanese confection. 3. Wagashi - Japanese confection Before tea is made, Japanese confection is served for you. Dish out a confection on a kaishi (Japanese tissue). 4. How to drink Matcha Your tea is served. Put the bowl in the palm of your left hand, hold it with your right hand, and turn it twice clockwise. It is to avoid the front face of the bowl from being put to your lips. Drink tea slowly in 3 to 4 times. Please don't hesitate to make a slurping noise when you take the last swig of the tea as that tells you enjoyed the tea very much.
