Japanese Tea Ceremony
October 2 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us on the Library lawn for a traditional Tea Ceremony with The Mid-Hudson Japanese Community Association (MHJCA)
Dressed in traditional gowns the presenters will demonstrate the roles of the tea host. Two guests will join them to help show the audience how tea is traditionally prepared and received. Learn the process, including the meanings and history behind the traditional tea ceremony.
Everyone will be individually served wagashi which is a Japanese sweet that complements the bitterness of the tea, followed by matcha in a traditional bowl.
* Please note that for practical reasons, the ceremony will be in the style of Ryurei, where the tea is prepared and served at a table, not on the ground
This program is limited to the first 20 people to register, then a waiting list will be kept. Once registered, please let us know if you can’t make it so that we can invite the next person on the waiting list.
The rain date is October 9th.
