Cha Zen

Sen no Rikyu (1522 ‒ 1591), the grand master of the Wabi
(Meaning “Sober and calm refinement” ) school, brought the tea ceremony close to the spirit of Zen. Rikyu considered the spirit of the tea ceremony and that of Zen to be naturally joined (in what he calls “Cha-Zen Ichi-mi” ). For him, making tea while engaging the five senses and tasting it meditatively is to have a complete Zen experience.
We would be very pleased if you could come to our place and share a moment of joy through your five senses, while finding the spirit of Cha-Zen and Japanese culture through a couple of tea.
