This week, the Barn at TASIS England was transformed into a Japanese tearoom so that parents could experience a traditional Japanese sado (茶道)  tea ceremony.

The group gathered around TASIS parent, Noriko, and watched as she carefully demonstrated the ancient practice with poise and grace. Parents learned how to sit, eat, drink, and bow, and about the history behind the ceremony, including on which occasions it is used in Japan. The practice is characterized by humility, simplicity, profundity, and asymmetry, which are fascinating to behold, especially for cultures outside of Japan.
