Traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony

In Year 13 Japanese class, the students experienced a traditional Japanese tea ceremony.

japlang 04The Japanese tea ceremony is a ceremonial practice that involves drinking Matcha green tea in a special way. The tea is prepared in a special process that can be very long and extensive. The ceremony is developed around four important values’: Harmony, Purity, Respect and Tranquillity.

The students ate Japanese sweets, made green tea with a special bowl and a special bamboo whisk, and then served each other.

One of the students, Elvijs Norenbergsl mentioned ‘The ceremony was fantastic and the taste of the tea was very nice and enjoyable’. Another student, Lewis Clarke commented d ‘I liked it a lot. The tea was very rich and earthy. I would like to drink it again’.

It was great that all students showed interest with an open mind to have a go at a tea ceremony from a different culture, understood the meaning around it, respect it and enjoyed the experience.japlang 05
