Japanese Tea Ceremony
Sochi Nomoto
Japanese tea ceremony is called Chanoyu, Cha-do or simply O-cha. It is is the traditional etiquette of preparing and  serving Japanese green tea, together with Japanese sweets. Preparing tea in this ceremony involves the principles of harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility. The process is not about drinking tea, but the aesthetics of preparing a bowl of tea from one's heart - sharing a bowl of tea.

Take a few minutes and meet Sochi ... and explore a bit of the history of Tea Ceremony.

Sochi teaches classes in the art of tea ceremony several times throughout the week at her Yorba Linda tea house.  If you are interested in more information or in attending a demonstration, please contact us.
