tea ceremony with guest Tea Master Kentaro Ohkuni. The tea ceremony is
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.
