A nice and warm experience to give you a peak into tea ceremonies

I really liked the tea ceremony that the hostess organised. We were given a brief look into what a tea ceremony is and experience it. The hostess gave us insight into the material, tea, rituals and customs. She was really kind and explained a lot in good and understandable English.

Excellent friendly host, who was a tea ceremony master. The steps were simple enough to learn, the ceremony had a private feel with just us and another couple. She offered opportunity for questions, and we had lots for her at the end!

No one else arrived, so we ended up with a private tour. The guide was very kind, and very knowledgeable. It was a great, authentic-feeling experience! Great value for money. I would recommend for those seeking a cultural experience.

A very interactive and informative experience. I learnt so much in a very short time and was lucky enough to be the only guest this time. would highly recommend the experience if you are interested in the culture.

Really great service. We received amazing explanations about the history and also any questions we had about the ceremony. The matcha served was lovely and we even had the opportunity to learn how to whisk tea.
