Everglades: Japanese Tea Ceremony (Chadō) *SOLD OUT*

Chadō is counted as one of the three classical Japanese arts of refinement. Four principles - harmony, respect, purity and tranquility - comprise the essence of Chadō.

This is a Japanese cultural activity involving the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha (green tea). The presenters will wear beautiful Kimono and a delicious afternoon tea of both Australian and Japanese food will be served on the Cherry Terrace following the ceremony.

Also called ‘The Way of Tea’, this is a tradition dating to the 12th century. Zen Buddhism was a primary influence in the development of the ceremony.

An afternoon tea of Japanese and Australian delicacies will be served following the Chadō.
