Japanese Tea Ceremony

with Keiko Uchida 

Sun 27 November 2022
3:15 pm
- 4:30 pm


The Workshop

In this very special afternoon tea ceremony and workshop run by tea master Keiko Uchida, you will take a traditional Japanese tea ceremony with high-grade matcha tea especially imported from Kyoto’s very best teashop. Keiko will be bringing traditional Japanese tea equipment, which is rarely seen outside of Japan and you will learn about the history and philosophy of the tradition.

This special event promises to be a truly memorable experience.

The Workshop Leader

Keiko has been practicing the Japanese tea ceremony for over 25 years. Her mother is a Kimono specialist and her late father developed traditional tea rooms for his clients. She started practicing the tea ceremony as a way of understanding traditional Japanese culture. Since then, studying and practicing the tea ceremony has become a major part of her life’s work, and her mission is to introduce the art of tea to global audiences.

Please note: this is a separate event from the 2-part workshop with Ember Vincent Ceramics and Keiko Uchida
