Japanese Tea Ceremony at Carnegie Mellon, November 11.

The Carnegie Mellon University Japanese Student Association will host a Japanese Tea Ceremony on Friday, November 11.
The Japanese tea ceremony, Sado (茶道), also called the Way of Tea, is a Japanese cultural activity involving the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha (抹茶), powdered green tea. The tea ceremony involves preparing powdered tea for guests according to custom and enjoying its austere taste quietly and serenely. Influenced by Zen Buddhism, the tea ceremony seeks to purify the mind and attain oneness with nature.

This event is a part of JSA's Culture Month, where we showcase the rich, unique culture of Japan in an assortment of performances, ceremonies and food. Join us as we celebrate culture in the month of November!
The event runs from 4:30 to 6:30 pm in Danforth Lounge of the Cohen University Center on Forbes Ave.
