Tea Ceremonies or 'Chado' have been a part of Japanese culture since the 16th Century and can now be enjoyed right here in Sydney at Eden Gardens, North Ryde.
On Sunday 23rd October you can enjoy traditional Japanese Sweets and tea while learning about the history of the tea ceremony. There will be two styles of demonstrations available, tatami mat style and table and chair style, giving you the chance to be immersed in the Japanese culture and eat some yummy treats at the same time.
This unique experience is presented by Sydney's Chado Urasenke Tankokai Association which has been conducting tea ceremonies in Sydney for over 35 years. One of the aims of the association is to share the harmony, respect, purity and tranquility of the Japanese Tea Ceremony with Australians.
Tickets for this event are $20 for two servings of traditional sweets and tea. Session times are 11am, 11.45am, 12.30pm, 1.15pm and 2.00pm. Contact Naoko on 0450 840 616 or firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your booking.
