Chado, the Way of Tea, is the practice of preparing, serving, and drinking Tea. Since the 15th century, it has been a study in preparing a bowl of powdered green tea (matcha ) as well as incorporating many of the arts of Japan. This elegant yet simple practice reflects the philosophy of the four principles of Tea:
Harmony: Wa , Respect: Kei , Purity: Sei , Tranquility: Jaku
Where: Portland Japanese Garden, 611 SW Kingston Ave, Portland, Oregon 97205
When: Saturday, July 21, 2012 at 1 and 2 pm
