Japanese Tea Ceremony by Murasaki

Japan Foundation’s language students on "the Way of Tea"

December 6, 2017

 

国際交流基金の日本語クラスの生徒への茶道のワークショップです。

薄茶と濃茶の両方を差し上げました。

 

This week, we had a very successful Japanese tea ceremony workshop at Stephen Globus Washitsu teahouse in collaboration with Japan Foundation. The event was to instruct Japan Foundation’s language students on “the Way of Tea.” Hosted by Stephen Globus and conducted by Omotesenke style tea instructor Keiko Kitazawa Koch Kitazawa.

It was a unique tea that simultaneously served Koicha (Thick tea) and Usucha (Thin tea) to our guests (in separate tatami rooms). Koicha service isnot often seen in the public. It was was an educational and memorable for the all.

 

We celebrated the completion of our JF Japanese language course, Fall term by experiencing the unique Japanese tea ceremony at the elegant and authentic tearoom “KeiSui-an”. 

We all tried both KOICHA (Thick tea) and USUCHA (Thin tea)!
After the workshop, students were invited to a reception generously hosted by the Globus family. 
Thank you,Mr. Stephen Globus,for your continued kindness in hosting this event again this year, and Ms. Keiko Kitazawa Koch and her students, for serving tea and sharing this precious moment with us.
