Experience 400 years ago of Japan
Tea ceremony is one of the most traditional culture in the world. It was established 430 years ago of Japan by Rikyu Sen, the ancient grand tea master, to entertain noble or luxury people. Usucha ,thin tea, is the most popular and well known matcha style, and we also have Koicha, thick tea, style which is known only by the people who are learning tea ceremony. The most authentic grand tea ceremony style is called Chaji.
Special, Secret, and Private
Using Antique Tea wares
We usually use antique tea wares for the tea ceremony, such as... 500 years old chawan (tea bowl), 300 years old kama (caldron), 150 years old chashaku (bamboo tea scoop), and so on. It means that tea ceremony is not just a ceremony, but also enjoying those antiques at once. Those are all one of a kind items, and never be able to get it again, never able to be fixed. Depends on your selection of course, I use antique tea wares as many as I can.
