You will make a green tea (Matcha) in an ancient style Japanese tea ceremony room. Traditionally the tea ceremony is best enjoyed by wearing yukata or kimono but I'd love travelers to join the activity by wearing casual clothes. You can still experience this superb cultural ritual in Kyoto without changing clothes. The ceremony itself takes no longer than 40 minutes and you can get done with everything within an hour. This is a ritual-like activity where ceremonial tea is prepared and presented to promote well-being, mindfulness, and harmony. It is also called the Way of the Tea!
