Japanese Tea Ceremony in the Teahouse

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT. 

Japanese Tea Ceremony in the Teahouse

Witness the Japanese art of chanoyu, or tea ceremony. Graceful Japanese tea masters in elegant kimono will perform the ceremonial cleansing of the utensils and thoughtful preparation and quiet presentation of a bowl of matcha—finely ground green tea. After the presentation, savor sweets and matcha green tea. As an integral part of this program, all guests will utilize and enjoy original works of Shigaraki pottery from Meijer Gardens’ personal collection. Each object is a work of art especially commissioned from some of Japan’s leading ceramics masters. This contemplative ceremony appeals to all five senses and is best observed quietly. Guests may be asked to remove their shoes before entering. Registration required. Register early: Space is limited.
