Urasenke Chanoyu School of Japan
Chado, the way of tea, has developed over the past 400 years in Japan. Host and guests share a bowl of matcha, bright green finely powdered tea leaves, while using a prescribed set of movements and some very unique tea making and drinking equipment. In the process of doing, students who practice chado learn about traditional Japanese history, culture, and art.
