We had a zen ceremonial event at the AAA store today, having a good friend of ours, Migiwa, teaching us a philosophy of Japanese tea ceremony,
和敬清寂 - Wa Kei Sei Jaku
Wa - Harmony
Kei - Repect
Sei - Purity
Jaku - Tranquillity
*The four most important elements of the tea ceremony.
The Japanese tea ceremony is called Sado or simply Ocha in Japanese. It is a choreographic ritual of preparing and serving Japanese green tea, called Matcha, together with traditional Japanese sweets to balance with the bitter taste of the tea
We had lovely customers here immersing themselves in the tranquil art of Matcha tea making and tasting during our Japanese tea ceremony in our store.
