I joined Japanese tea ceremony @Jiyugaoka tonight!
It is a choreographic ritual of preparing and serving Japanese green tea(Matcha), together with traditional Japanese sweets to balance with the bitter taste of the tea.
Preparing tea in this ceremony means pouring all one's attention into the predefined movements. The whole process is not only about drinking tea, but also about aesthetics, preparing a bowl of tea from one's heart. The host of the ceremony always considers the guests with every movement and gesture.
