Witness the Japanese art of chanoyu, or tea ceremony. Graceful Japanese tea masters in elegant kimono, will perform the ceremonial cleansing of the utensils, thoughtful preparation and quiet presentation of a bowl of matcha (finely ground green tea), with commentary by a representative from the Japanese Consulate. After the presentation, savor the sweets and matcha green tea. This contemplative ceremony appeals to all five senses and is best observed quietly.
