Tea Ceremony Koto with Master of Tea

Kyoto & Eastern Kansai

Description

The quality of powdered green tea is made by Ippodo tea shop and you can experience real Japanese tea ceremony in that you can drink tea that a host makes and also tea you make by yourselves.
The main stream of Kyoto’s English tea ceremony is that a host will make tea as a demonstration and then customers will tea by themselves. However, in the real tea ceremony, it is impossible for customers to make tea by themselves. Also, the taste of tea changes depending on how you make tea. In our plan, you can have tea that a host makes and the one that you make as well. Additionally, you can experience the real tea ceremony.

About the Master

Hi I'm Rie,

Born and raised in Kyoto (1986). Graduated from Doshisha University in 2009. Learning tea ceremony when I was working for a bank for 5 years, I found the tea room was the best place to feel relax with varieties of Japanese art & cultures. Since I would like to share this experience with everybody including foreign tourists, I then Established Tea Ceremony KOTO in September 2015.

I am also specialist for lecturing tea ceremony in English.
