Come enjoy an afternoon tea with a demonstration of the Formal Japanese Tea Ceremony by Yukimakai - Chado Urasenke Tankokai Minnesota Dokokai, the local tea study group.
The objective of a Japanese tea ceremony is relaxed communion between host and guests. It is based not only on the etiquette of serving tea, but on the precise performance and aesthetics of the centuries-old ritual, the beauty of the utensils, the simplicity of the surroundings, and the social aspects of experiencing the ceremony with others. All of these elements coexist in a harmonious relationship with the ceremony.
