About this Event

While many cultures around the world practice some type of tea ceremony, none are as meticulous and detail-oriented as the Japanese tea ceremony of Urasenke. But where did this ancient tea ceremony come from, and why does it take a lifetime to master? It's time to experience one of Japan's oldest traditional tea ceremonies inside a secret indoor Japanese garden hidden in the Upper East Side.

Join New York Adventure Club for a traditional Japanese tea ceremony demonstration in the style of Urasenke, one of the main schools of Japanese tea ceremony.

Led by a Tea Master at the Urasenke Chanoyu Center — a private organization established in 1967 to promote the rich cultural tea tradition of Urasenke in New York City and teach its members how to master this ancient tradition over the course of 10-15 years — this unique experience will include:

 

  • A brief overview of the Urasenke Chanoyu Center, from its days as an 1880s carriage house to studio of famed artist Mark Rothko
  • Access inside the secret Japanese garden and its traditional tea rooms, all of which were constructed by traditional carpenters from Kyoto, Japan using imported Japanese materials
  • An authentic Urasenke tea ceremony demonstration to learn about its history and philosophy, etiquette, and traditions
  • An opportunity to consume the best quality sweets and matcha green tea from Kyoto, Japan, where Urasenke originated
