Are there any tea houses // venues that provide anything close to the traditional Japanese Matcha Ceremony ??
During the Nissei Week Japanese Festival, the Japanase American Cultural and Community Center hosts hourly traditional tea ceremonies in their traditional tea house which is located on the fifth floor of their building in Little Tokyo. This year it was held the third week of August.
At a party I was at recently they had a tea ceremony tasting it was really interesting. The history and the tools were a good study something new for me. The performer had just come back from Japan where she lived for many years studying the cultural arts of Japan. I got a fan with her name on it, Theresa Lynn, her home page is American Kabuki Girl. com. definetly worth checking out. http://americankabukigirl.com
