The Tea Ceremony ( Sado ) is a way of preparing and
drinking tea. Nowadays, the Tea Ceremony is a relatively
popular kind of hobby. Many Japanese who are interested in
their own culture, take Tea Ceremony lessons with a
teacher. Tea Ceremonies are held in traditional Japanese
rooms in cultural community center or private houses. The
ceremony itself consists of many rituals that have to be
learned by heart. Almost each hand movement is prescribed.
Basically, the Tea is first prepared by the host, and then
drunken by the guests.
