Japanese Art of Tea Ceremony
Hello! This is Murasaki Japanese Institute.
今日(きょう)のブログは、お茶会(ちゃかい)イベントの詳細(しょうさい)について と 茶箱点前(ちゃばこ てまえ)について です。
Today's blog topics are:
Chabako(tea box) temae(procedures)
Our spring tea ceremony
Our school teacher, Shimizu-sensei who is also an experienced tea master wrote the below.
“Chabako temae" - Urasenke
This Chabako temae is one of them.
Chabako means tea box. Temae means procedures.
All utensils that necessary for serve of tea are in the box compactly.
It's very cute and also convenient to carry around.
Therefore you can enjoy Japanese traditional tea not only in side but also out of doors cozily with Chabako.
And you can also enjoy Japanese sweets with tea.
I'm sure that you would be interested in this and enjoy the Japanese traditional tea ceremony.
