This activity includes two kinds of powdered green tea (thick tea and light tea), fresh sweets and dried traditional sweets. All are made by shops of long standing in Kyoto. Especially, Japanese fresh sweets are really artistic. Hear the beautiful name of the sweets which reflects seasons in Japan.

Thick tea is typical in tea ceremony, rare to see in Japanese cafes. The way of tea is a little different from the light one. It’s more elegant and rare to see also. But if you would like a host to make light tea instead of thick tea, it's possible.

You can take photos for free. It is recommended to keep tranquil atmosphere during the way of tea, but if you would like to take photos, it’s up to you because it’s private session. Also in the next waiting room, you can take photos with kimono or Nishijin textiles before or after the tea ceremony experience.

You can make good light tea of good quality at home after taking this class. If you have problem with your legs or hard to sit on tatami, please use little chairs suit to tatami room for free.
