Update 2:
Dear All,
Re: Japanese Tea Ceremony

Please accept deeply my apologise in advance because of the amendments I have to do regarding the a.m. event.

I have just recieved an important call from Musuem of Art & Industry- ( Kunst & Gewerbe Musuem) . Because of some organisational issues and problems at Musuem we must change the date from Saturday 19th of May to Sunday 20th of May.

The time will be the same at 13:30 and you can stay still in the list but you are not obliged to be present for it. In case of abscence no payment is any more necessary.

The procedure of ceremony will stay intact.

You are free now to cancel your attendance or just stay in the list if 20th of May is the right timing for you.

If every one cancel I will remove the event. This a two month work and I was in contact with the Musuem and it is an unpredictable situtaion. Thank u for your understanding.

The Japanese tea ceremony, also called the Way of Tea, is a Japanese cultural institution involving the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha (抹茶), that is, powdered green tea.

In Japanese, it is called chanoyu (茶の湯) or sadō, chadō (茶道), while the art of its performance, is called (o)temae ([お]手前; [お]点前). Zen Buddhism was a primary factor in the development of the Japanese tea ceremony. Japanese tea practice also, though less widely, uses leaf tea, primarily sencha, in which case it is known in Japanese as senchadō (煎茶道, the way of sencha) as opposed to chanoyu or chadō.

Tea gatherings are classified as an informal tea gathering chakai (茶会, tea gathering) and a formal tea gathering chaji (茶事, tea event). A chakai is a relatively simple course of hospitality that includes confections, thin tea, and perhaps a light meal. A chaji is a much more formal gathering, usually including a full-course kaiseki meal followed by confections, thick tea, and thin tea. A chaji can last up to four hours.

Chadō is counted as one of the three classical Japanese arts of refinement, along with kōdō for incense appreciation, and kadō for flower arrangement.
