ABOUT THE WAY OF SENCHA
日本人も知らない茶道
The "Way of Tea" Even the Japanese Don't Know

The Japanese "Way of Tea" (sadō) is ever striving to prepare

tea even beautifully, even more deliciously. In addition to

the well-known Chanoyu, which uses Matcha (tea leaves

ground into a fine powder) during its ceremonies, there

exists "another" Way of Tea that even the Japanese do not

know much about ― the Way of Sencha (senchadō).

Highly appreciating a free, unbound spirit and the notion of hospitality, this form of the Way of Tea uses whole tea leaves, which are infused in hot water for a short time before the tea is served. Instead of strictly following a rigid sequence of fixed movements and actions, the Way of Sencha possesses a unique air of simplicity, refinement and lightness, allowing us to view the world of Japanese tea from a different angle and get in

touch with traditional culture.

Experience for yourself the fascination

of a true Sencha tea ceremony (o-temae).

お茶をより美味しく、より美しく淹れることを常に目指す茶道。

抹茶を使用する茶の湯の他に、茶道のもう一種である煎茶道は、

茶葉のままの煎茶や玉露に、お湯を注いで飲む形を採り、

自由な精神とおもてなしを重んじます。

一定の形式を厳重に守るというより、気軽な雰囲気を特徴とし、

お茶の世界の違う一面に触れることができる伝統文化です。

是非一度煎茶道のお手前をご体験下さい。

 
ABOUT TEA CEREMONIES
禅の心を得るお手前
Feel the Spirit of Zen in a Tea Ceremony

The term "tea ceremony" (o-temae) refers to a sequence

of actions performed to prepare tea in front of guests. Combining these actions into a single "form", it consists of a beautiful carriage, a gracious attitude and a series of gestures that are enacted as if flowing into each other seamlessly.

 

Through the tea ceremony, the host and the guests share the same place and together they create a space where they exchange and partake of each other's feelings and thoughts. Even though the bonds formed during these moments might be ephemeral, certainly they will remain chiseled into each participant's heart for a long time to come.

お手前とは、客人の前でお茶を淹れる一連の動作の流れを指します。その動作を「型」にし、美しい姿勢と流れるような所作により形成され、心を静める風景となります。

お手前を通じて、亭主と客人が同じ場を共有し、お茶席という空間を作り上げ、お互いの想いを交わします。そこで紡がれる絆が泡沫的なものにも関わらず、その出会いは心に刻まれてゆくでしょう。
