Description

Discover the fine art of Japanese tea preparation during a guided ceremony in the heart of Kyoto. A tea master welcomes you into their machiya, or traditional wooden townhouse, and instructs you in the ritual of preparing and consuming a delicious, earthy tea followed by a sweet snack for dessert.

Step away from the bustling city streets of Kyoto and enter the machiya, where you meet a tea master and translator. After getting acquainted with the light-filled space, learn how to prepare tea according to traditional Japanese custom. Begin by observing the tea master brew the concoction from a powdered tea mixture that has been in use since the 12th century.

Enjoy a few moments of silence while the tea steeps. Before indulging in a steaming cup, allow the tea master to demonstrate tips and tricks for adopting the correct posture, as well as pouring and sipping the tea. As you devote your concentration to this traditional art form, feel a sense of calm wash over you.

The contemplative elements involved in tea preparation allow you to settle your mind and focus on what is most important. Sip your tea and savor the sweet snack offered by your guide. Before your tour is through, your translator assists you in posing any lingering questions to the tea master.
