A local chapter of the Urasenke Tradition of Tea in Kyoto, Japan, the Wakai Tea Association is dedicated to promoting the history and culture of tea ceremony. Their monthly guest night demonstrations are a wonderful way to experience this Japanese tradition firsthand.

Space is limited to 10 participants, so please RSVP early!

WHEN: Tuesday, February 22, 7pm (please arrive by 6:45pm)

WHERE: Private home in SW Portland’s Sylvan neighborhood (details provided upon RSVP)

COST: $10 per person

RSVP: Contact VP to RSVP (RSVP Required)

WHAT TO WEAR AND BRING: Each guest will need to bring white socks to wear in the tearoom. Please wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off. Please do not wear fragrances, jewelry or watches in the tearoom, or jeans, cutoffs, miniskirts, or tight pants. You’ll be seated on tatami mats, so suitable and comfortable clothes are appropriate especially covering the knees when seated. Accommodations will be made for those who can’t sit on the mat but need a stool, chair, or bench.

WHERE TO PARK: Please do not park at the garage. Park where you see other cars parked, or alongside the driveway to your left.
