Do you talk at a Japanese tea ceremony?

User Avatar
In general, there is little conversation, and most of it takes place between the host and the head guest, but during the breaks and the informal portions of the ceremony there may be some quiet conversation.

What is the price of a Japanese tea ceremony?

User Avatar
To attend a basic (~30 minute) demonstration will be anything from free to $25 US dollars. Attendance at a full, 4.5-hour formal tea ceremony is usually by invitation, and so is free. I can't imagine what you'd have to pay to attend one (if such a thing were even possible, which I doubt), but given the amount of work involved it would probably be in the hundreds of dollars. To host a formal tea ceremony, assuming you already own all the necessary clothing and equipment, will probably cost at least $50-$100 US.

In the case of thin tea: 1. Receive the bowl from the assistant, and bow or Retrieve it from the host and return to your place. 2. Place the bowl next to the guest on your left or, if you are the second guest, next to the first guest, and bow 3. Move the bowl in front of you and bow. 4. Place the bowl on the left palm and bow. 5. Rotate the bowl towards you twice 6. With the bowl on your left palm, cup with the right hand and drink. 7. Wipe the rim 8. Turn the bowl away from you twice. 9. Set the bowl in front of you and admire it. 10. If there is an assistant: Turn the bowl away from you twice more and place in front of you; exchange bows with the assistant. If there is no assistant, return the bowl the host and then return to your place. The procedure for thick tea is much more complicated.

What type of tea is Matcha?

User Avatar
Matcha, the type of tea used in the Japanese tea ceremony, is a powdered green tea. More specifically, it as a Japanese green tea, and it is most similar to Gyokuro. Like gyokuro, it is a shade-grown green tea. Although it originated in Japan, teas in the style of Matcha are now produced elsewhere, including in Kenya and China. Matcha is not the same as any powdered green tea...it is more specific. Other green teas, if powdered, would not be considered matcha.

Why is the Japanese Tea Ceremony a ceremony?

It's not really a ceremony, but rather a ceremonious way of preparing and drinking tea. "Tea Ceremony" is just what we call it in English. In Japanese it's called "The Way of Tea."
