The Japanese Tea Ceremony

I've never been to Japan but it's at the top of my travel wish list. One of the things that I would like to see and participate in is the traditional tea ceremony. While doing some research on this, I went to Youtube (where else?) to look for a good tea-ceremony video and found quite a few. I was hoping to find one that was shot in a Japanese garden and did find one but it had subtitles that I found distracting. The one I've posted here was shot indoors in a traditional Japanese room, and it's very interesting and informative (there is no narration, so you just have to learn from watching). I'll keep looking for the ultimate video, but in the meantime, if you have a few minutes and are interested in tea, you'll find this video fun to watch.

  1. Hi Jeff,

    Tea isn't my thing, but I still want to visit Japan! I have ever since I saw Shogun for the first time back in the 80's. Well, okay, I wanted to go visit since watching all of those old martial arts movies from the 70's, but I try not to tell people that. :)
