Annual International Festival at Georgetown University - Tea Ceremony Demonstration

Event Date: Sunday, November 14

Event Time: 2pm to 5pm


学校が休みの日曜日のイベントでしたので、主催者の方も人数が集まるか心配をされていましたが、多くの学生が参加の登録をして下さいました。4回のデモンストレーションで約55名の登録をされた方にお茶とお菓子を差し上げました。京都本部から頂きましたお茶はとても美味しく、抹茶を初めて(砂糖なしで)頂く方達に本当の抹茶の味を知って頂けたように思います。又、体験コーナーでは、お茶に興味のある学生が、順番を待つ風景も見られました。主催者の方からは、このようなイベントを将来、開催をしていきたい、とのお言葉を頂いております。来年も引き続き、表千家のお茶をご紹介出来ることを祈っています。



The event host was initially worried if there would be enough guests/participants for Teicha, given that the event took place on Sunday. It turned out that over 55 students registered. There were 4 sessions of Ryurei demonstrations and approximately 14 guests participated in each session.


Guests enjoyed an experience of authentic Chanoyu, including Macha green tea given by Omotesenke Kyoto Headquaters and sweets. Also, at a Matcha tea making experience table, guests made their own tea and tasted it following Omotesenke Domonkai members' instructions. The event host expressed their gratitude and said that they would like to co-host an event like this every year. We hope to have another Ryurei demonstration and “make your own Matcha tea experience” in collaboration with the Georgetown University next year.
