Description:

Learn the art of the Japanese tea ceremony, the ancient practice that expresses the essence of Japanese culture and beauty. Tea itself was introduced from China in the 8th century and was a rare and valuable commodity, grown in Japan for religious purposes associated with Zen Buddhism. By the 13th century tea was being cultivated for use by the samurai class, and the roots of the elaborate ceremony associated with tea drinking had begun.
