What is Chanoyu?

Chanoyu (Chado), or the Way of Tea, is a spiritual practice formalized by Sen no Rikyu in the 16th century. You will learn about the Way of Tea from an introductory lecture, watch a demonstration, and enjoy a bowl of matcha (green powder tea) with some Japanese confections. This experience will sooth the mind with each methodic step.
