MATCHA: Kampai ! Sake + Tea June 18, 2009 The contrast of the samurai as one part warrior and one part cultivated gentlemen was echoed in customs of drinking sake and tea. Samurai were active participants in shaping the development of tea practice called chanoyu. Join members of two Bay Area Japanese tea groups, Urasenke San Francisco Association and Omotesenke Domonkai, to whisk and drink your own bowl of powdered green tea, also known as matcha, the namesake of the MATCHA program series. Observe tea demonstrations in the museums Japanese tea room on the second floor. Before the samurai set off for battle, three successive cups of sake were hoisted as a toast to a successful expedition. At elegant parties held in samurai homes, both sake and tea were enjoyed on a connoisseur level along with a traditional Japanese meal. (Dishes used in such meals are on display in the special exhibition.) Tonight's MATCHA features a flight of three sakes that reference the intriguing history of the samurai. Join Kirsten Shilakes for a twenty-minute presentation about sake and its fascinating connections to the Lords of the Samurai exhibition. Miwa Wang, sake sommelier and manager of True Sake, will be on hand to answer your sake questions. Kampai!

Tea Ceremony (Bontemae) Here is the Japanese short form tea ceremony. It is a Zen (meditative) like experience that awakes all the senses. If you get the opportunity to smell and taste the powdered green tea, you will not be disappointed. The ritual has specific movements and sequences. It is rather long to watch but this is know as the short or train ceremony. The long form can take 3 hours. The focus is to be in the moment so time really is not a consideration. Hope you find it relaxing.
