Tea Ceremony

7up May 4, 2008 10:55 PM

I am seeking people who practice Japanese Tea Ceremony in the D.C. area. I am helping a friend to find someone (even a student) who can make tea as part of her wedding ceremony. Any connections would be so appreciated!

    I don't know if this is even remotely helpful, but here is the link to a website that seems relevant:


    I must admit to a total lack of personal experience in these matters.

      You should contact the Japan America Society: http://www.us-japan.org/dc/

        I am Chinese and my husband is Korean. I had a Korean tea ceremony the day before my wedding a few years ago. The traditions and symbolism of the (Chinese & Korean) tea ceremony are very similar. Unfortunately, I've never attended a Japanese tea ceremony, but I imagine there are also many commonalities (honoring elders, bowing, drinking tea, etc). I'm starting an Asian wedding/event planning business and may be able to help. She may also want to try the local chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League http://www.jacldc.org/
