The Japanese tea ceremony, or chanoyu (translated literally as “hot water for tea”), is a cherished ritual involving the preparation and presentation of powdered green tea in a highly stylized manner.
A host and a guest, wearing traditional Japanese kimono specific to the ceremony, will demonstrate how tea has been prepared, served, and enjoyed in Japan since the 12th century.
We advise that tea won’t be served to our audience due to Covid-19 restrictions.
General admission: $20 per person (includes Gardens admission).
Member admission: $5
Advanced ticket reservation is required.
This is a limited admission event to guarantee social distancing to our guests.
