This semester I took a Japanese tea ceremony class. It was pretty interesting and we drank tea, eat sweets and explored Japanese tea culture. We learned about Senchadou, which is different from the well known Chadou. It uses different utensils, different tea leaves (sencha(煎茶・せんちゃ）, not the usual matcha（抹茶・まったちゃ）) and the tea serving and brewing methods are different.

This is the arrangement of the table.
This is used to pour in the water, when you are cleaning the cups.

Warning: These pictures aren't very good. There was a really big crowd and we had to walk all the time and keep up with it, so I just randomly took pictures of what I could. Please, enjoy :)
