Ooh~ lucky you! XD I haven't... I imagine that it would be very soothing, though.
Tell me all about it when you return, okay? :)

I haven't but I hope to participate one day. I have two copies of "The Book of Tea" by Okakura Kakuzo (1906) and love the ideals built into the ceremony. I'll go through some training first before I participate -- wouldn't want to be a crass barbarian and ruin the ceremony for the others.

You should let us know how it went so we can dwell on it as well. I, personally, have never seen one, so it'll be a new experience to me :)

Seen it. Nothing to it. You will need patients. Something like chinese tea preparation. But more preparation. And practice the sitting. You will be in that posture for some time.

hi everyone :) excuse me for being late but i couldn't put an hand to a computer before now!!! the ceremony was - unfortunately - short, too short ! a real tea ceremony goes on 4 hours so, they only shown us the last 15 minutes of the ceremony... first, all my comrades :) and myself put away our socks, we enter the room barefoot. there was big white papers on the floor, a tatami, and a paravent with a calligraphy. the calligraphy represented the four princepts of the ceremony : harmony - serenity - respect and the last one, if i remember right, peace. my heart was pounding very fast when i saw 2 people wearing beautiful kimonos : a man and a woman. the one of the woman was pink and orange and the man, grey. 1 - they have shown us how the end of the ceremony was set. 2 - they explain a few things about the tea and the instruments... 3 - they prepared tea and a biscuits for us... we often heard that japenese tea is bitter but, frankly, that's not it !!! compared to english tea, it's sweet and doesn't give a bitter taste after... the color of japenese tea is really green, it semls like all vegetals and plants... the taste is like plant too or "algues". when i drank it i couldn't say if i have hate it or like it, it's pretty troubling !i thik i have liked it in the end... it was really amazing to see that during the ceremony the atmosphere was really peaceful... i'll talk more about what i have seen and heard later ! XD
