About Japanese Tea Ceremony

The earliest mention of tea in Japan dates back to the 8th century BC, when it was first used as a medicinal herb. It is believed that tea (especially matcha produced from powdered dried green tea leaves) was so racre and valuable in Japan that its enjoyment soon evolved into an elaborate ceremony. Called Chanoyu or Chado, the Japanese tea ceremony elevates the process of making and drinking tea into an art. The elaborate ritual sometimes requires days of preparation, and is known for its attention to detail, which includes the careful selection of bowls and vases according to the seasons. Also referred to as The Way of Tea, the ceremony encompasses the following elements: wa (harmony), kei (respect), sei (purity) and jaku (tranquillity).
