Learn the art of the Japanese tea ceremony with
guest Tea Master Kentaro Ohkuni. Beginners welcome. 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.
Cost $20 for one or both sessions. For additional information contact Patti
Lechman at 901-497-1808.
