Participate in the formal and graceful ritual of a traditional tea ceremony. The demonstration is a very practical way to show the high priority given to hospitality. When a guest arrives, the hostess will serve tea, usually accompanied by a traditional snack. The freshly brewed tea is poured from the teapot into a ceramic cup and then returned to the teapot three times, allowing the full flavor and aroma of the tea to develop. The fourth time, tea is poured into the guest's cup, filling it only halfway so that it will be the perfect temperature for the guest to enjoy.
Approximate tour duration is 1 hour. Details to be provided locally.
