Traditional Cherry Blossom Tea Ceremony
The tea ceremony is a traditional Japanese artistic custom that goes back 400 years. Historical records show tea gatherings linked with the cherry blossoms at least from the latter half of the 16th century when Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the famous Daimyo general and dictator (1536-1598), hosted tea ceremonies under the cherry trees in Kyoto.
This year, we will be hosting a seated style tea ceremony outside in the garden of the historic Evermay Estate in Georgetown. There will be three tables for the tea demonstration where you will be served a cup of tea, and one location where you are welcome to make a cup of tea by yourself, and the tea style flower arrangement.
As a exclusive offer to the Tea Ceremony guests, the owner of the Evermaywill be opening up the Evermay Garden for the special guided tour.
